SLC NGS Research Trip Still Has Openings -- And not for long!

Let's Enjoy a Pizza Party (Wednesday Night)
Have you ever visited the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah?

If not, consider joining the NGS Research trip there, 12-19 February 2017. 

Once is Not Enough!
Dee Royere, Stacey Kerr, Ann Early, Sandra Page
and Paulette Gentry have done this before. Here they
enjoy the Saturday Night diiner at the Lion House.
There is no place like this particular library. Researchers have access to numerous commercial computer databases, more than two million rolls of microfilm, an immense collection of genealogical books, and outstanding worldwide maps.

Many years ago when I was moving from NJ to TX, I first drove to SLC and spent a week at the Family History Library.  I remember being pregnant (and sneaking crackers) and spending days on end in a microfilm cubicle researching my English and Finnish ancestry.  It was an experience that I won’t forget.  I also know that I would have greatly benefited from having some personal guidance since with my limited knowledge of what was there, I didn’t make quite the most of that trip.

And, it’s not just doing research all the time!  The trip includes a pizza party (the Wednesday night) and a closing dinner (the Saturday and typically held in a period room at The Lion House).  

Some people have also done this trip more than once!  Check out the image of some “repeat” attendees!  They must find it valuable or they wouldn’t return year-after-year!

Under the guidance of Marie Varrelman Melchiori, retired CG & CGL, and Shirley Langdon Wilcox, CG, FNGS, FVGS, participants will use the genealogical resources at the renowned Family History Library to conduct their personal genealogical research. 

Early bird registration ends 1 July 2016 Remember that the “early bird gets the worm” or in this case a discount of $300 off the published price!

Marie and Shirley look forward to guiding you as you conduct research in this incredible library.
