Genealogist Shellee Morehead works fast and focused. Digs up a great variety of information, pictures, documents and papers from the most impossible places. And then she presents her research in a short foreseeable way. [She] is very likeable, very lively and has a good memory for telling the right details, that makes the program credible and interesting to the viewers.  I give Shellee Morehead my very best recommendations to others who need genealogical help and need a good person to tell family history on tv.

Can't thank you enough for putting together such a great presentation.  There was something for everyone and you made it interesting and fun.  I only wish I had had the chance to go over to your show and tell table.  I hope others took advantage of the opportunity.  I would love to take you up on a follow up presentation sometime in the future.  I think everyone would love it.

Thanks again for doing such a great job.  I know it took a lot of time and work and I really appreciate it.
