Have you ever been to
Washington DC and visited , the DAR or the Library of Congress? NARA
If not, consider joining the NGS Research trip there, 1-6 November 2016.
Based on my own personal experience, you will greatly benefit from having someone guide you as first-time visitors to each of these repositories, especially the National Archives. Using finding aids, filling out pull slips & understanding about the fixed pull times, personal research consultations and more, are invaluable when visiting these national treasures. With only discrete pull times available, you want to make sure your requests are correctly formatted and for exactly what you want to look at.
Under the guidance of Patricia Walls Stamm, CGsm, CGLsm, Craig Roberts Scott, CG, FUGA, and Shirley Langdon Wilcox, CG, FNGS, FVGS, participants will use the genealogical resources at the National Archives and Records Administration, the Daughters of the American Revolution Library, and the Library of Congress to conduct their personal genealogical research. For more information, or to register for the trip, visit http://www.ngsgenealogy.org/cs/conferences_events/research_tips/dc_research_trip.
Early bird registration ends 2 August 2016! Remember that the “early bird gets the worm” or in this case a discount of $300 off the published price!
Patricia, Craig and Shirley look forward to guiding you as you conduct research in these wonderful DC repositories.
