Program:  Planning a Very Successful Genealogical Trip
Before you head out on your next genealogy research trip, let George G. Morgan help you make it a success. George’s presentation will help you maximize your research time the way professionals do it, and return home with a genealogical treasure trove.
 
Program description –
Regardless of whether you’re going to the library or heading out on a genealogical vacation, advance preparation is essential. You have to know who you are researching, what information you hope to find, what resources are available, and where to find them. A well-organized genealogist is the most effective researcher.  This seminar discusses numerous resources you can use to prepare for the most effective genealogical research trips you’ll ever make. We’ll examine books, periodicals, maps, Web pages, Internet mailing lists, city governments, libraries and archives, genealogical and historical societies, family associations, church secretaries, sextons and other resources you should use to gather advance information to help develop your research schedule.
