The New England Historic Genealogical Society sponsors "getaways," a time of intense research with one-on-one guidance from some of the best professionals in the field. I talked with those who took part in the last Research Getaway and they all seemed to enjoy it and benefit from the experience.
The following is an announcement from the Society about the next Research Getaway:
Time is running out to register for our Spring Research Getaway!
Celebrate the change of seasons with a getaway weekend in Boston. Our staff genealogists are here to help you with your research questions, from the very basic to the most complicated brick wall problems.
Participants at the Winter Research Getaway in February were thrilled with the amount of information they found. One said that it would take her months to process and digest all of the materials. A first-time participant from the South marvelled at the enormous volume of information in our collections, not only for New England, but for other states as well.
As a participant, you will have full access to over 200,000 books, periodicals, and microtext items, plus over one million manuscript items, free access to Heritage Quest, Ancestry, and our comprehensive CD-ROM collection. Explore genealogies, town, county, and state histories, vital records, census records, land records, probate records, city directories, immigration records, unpublished manuscripts, every essential reference, and much more - for three full days! Better still, you will receive personal consultations and lectures from some of the most knowledgeable and respected genealogists in the field today.
