Frugal Alternatives to a Genealogical Road Trip

Copyright 2012, Diane L Richard
Road trip in Spain and yes we did get a car through that street ... barely!

Summer can be such a great time to take a road trip -- the temperatures are warmer, kids are out of school, and maybe you even have a vacation on the horizon.

Unfortunately, sometimes because of health issues, caring for aging parents, work commitments, unemployment, and other reasons, a road trip is just not possible now or even for the foreseeable future.

If there is no genealogical road trip in your future, I suggest you read Frugal Alternatives to a Genealogical Road Trip by Amanda L Grossman (published in the Chron [online Houston Chronicle]) 13 May 2013.

Do you have any other suggestions for those who won’t be taking a genealogy road trip?

And, even if you are going on a road trip, a lot of the advice she provides is relevant!  After all, the more research you do at home in advance of such a trip, the more time you can spend on the trip getting to the “next level.” 

Fortunate enough to be able to go on a road trip?  You might find these articles will help you to make the most of your trip.

Do you have tips for those who are taking a genealogy road trip?
