The National Genealogical Society
 Announces Three Research Trips 

FALLS CHURCH, VA, 8 FEBRUARY 2018—The National Genealogical Society (NGS) invites individuals who are researching their family history to sign up for one or more of its upcoming research trips. NGS genealogy scholars will introduce you to, and help guide your research at, renowned repositories in Madison, Wisconsin; Washington, D.C.; and Salt Lake City, Utah.

This year, NGS will visit:
  • The Wisconsin Historical Society Library and Archives—one of our nation’s most extensive repositories—and the Max Kade Institute, a notable source of German and German American research materials in Madison, Wisconsin, 5–10 August 2018; 
  • Three research facilities in Washington, D.C. —The National Archives, the DAR Library, and the Library of Congress, 4–10 November 2018; 
  • The internationally recognized Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah, 27 January–3 February 2019.

Each research trip features: 
  • Experienced genealogists familiar with the repositories and the records they hold;
  • Online orientation to help prepare researchers for the repositories that they will visit; 
  • Meet and greet session with other researchers on the day of arrival; 
  • Research facility orientation;
  • Private research consultations with research trip leaders;
  • Hotel accommodations for the trip's duration with extra nights available at an additional cost;
  • Various complementary services at the hotel (see individual trip for particular details);
  • Fees, taxes, and gratuities (unless otherwise stated).

Learn from the experts how to search for documentation about your ancestors in these renowned institutions.  Visit the NGS website at https://www.ngsgenealogy.org/cs/research_trips to learn more about each research trip. Individual trip package prices vary depending upon the room occupancy and National Genealogical Society member status. Transportation to the location is not included.
