Feedback I have received from those on previous trips indicates this is a great experience. If you are interested in spending a week in Salt Lake City, accompanied by genealogy experts, you will be interested in this announcement from the National Genealogical Society:
16–23 October 2011
Space is limited to 30 attendees.
Registration Deadline: 1 October 2011
The National Genealogical Society (NGS) sponsors two research trips each year to the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, and one is filling up now for October.
Sandra MacLean Clunies, cg, and Shirley Langdon Wilcox, cg, fngs, will lead this trip. Both Sandy and Shirley are experienced researchers, familiar with the extensive resources available at the Family History Library, and they offer individual coaching and assistance to each participant.
This trip is the most affordable of many offered by other groups. The trip package price includes seven nights at the Salt Lake Plaza Hotel, located next door to the Library. The Plaza is ideally located not only for its access to the library, but also for free trolley access to area shopping and restaurants. Single and shared rooms are available, each with a refrigerator and microwave, and free wi-fi access.
Also included are an informal reception on the first Sunday evening, a pizza party on Wednesday evening, and a farewell dinner at the historic Lion House. There is a restaurant in the Salt Lake Plaza Hotel, and group members often travel together out to local restaurants for other evening meals.
