A Life-Changing Genealogy Research Trip to Salt Lake City!
By Dan Berg
 
After a 5+ year hiatus, MCGS’s biannual genealogy research trip is back!!!
Over the decades this trip has led to profound genealogical discoveries for dozens of MCGS members, which it can for you too!
What? Genealogical research for a week at the largest genealogical library in the world!
Where? Family Search Library in Salt Lake City, Utah
https://www.familysearch.org/en/library/
When? June 2-9, 2024. It’s a Sunday to Sunday trip to maximize research time since the library is closed on Sundays.
How Much? For hotel + airfare from MKE we are expecting the cost to be in the upper ~$900 range +/- per person, for a double-occupancy hotel room at the Plaza Hotel by Temple Square adjacent to the library. A single occupant supplement will be likely in the ~$375 range +/-.
If you are tentatively interested – there is no obligation at this time, please email: trips@milwaukeegenealogy.org.
Why? To have a world-class genealogical research experience and break down those ‘brick walls’ with assistance from library genealogical experts, as well as great comradery with your fellow MCGS members!
You will not regret coming on this trip, it’s an unbelievable experience!!!
 
At this time there is no discount to book group rates for air travel. So, individuals are being asked to book their own airfare flights. Individuals are also asked to book their own hotel rooms. The hotel has a block of rooms reserved that are available to book for MCGS.
