Family History Library Research Retreat April 2007-Spaces Still Available

My Ancestors Found_weblogo.jpgClasses to be held at the Plaza Hotel with daily research in the adjacent Family History Library in Salt Lake City.
When: April 30th-May 5th, 2007

Don’t miss a unique opportunity to explore the world’s largest Family History Library in the company of other researchers (soon-to-be friends) and caring professionals who want to help you connect with your ancestors. Imagine taking classes that fit your needs and having a real, professional genealogist sitting beside you in one-on-one sessions so you can finally do the kind of research you’ve been dreaming of.

Well, now is the time! Five floors full of microfilm, microfiche, biographies, periodicals, and digital files can seem overwhelming, but not after you’re given the grand tour, the specialized classes, and have been guided in where to go and what to do with your research by folks who know and love the FHL.

Here are some of the things that make this retreat so enjoyable and effective:

  • Tour of historic Temple Square – Utah’s most visited attraction.
  • Icebreaker social.
  • Individualized, professional classes, guided tours and getting to know the international Family History Library system and catalogue, inside and out.
  • Daily research time at the Family History Library (Tues. – Sat.).
  • Seasoned professionals available eight hours a day to work with you in one-on-one sessions to guide you in your research.
  • Assistance throughout the day to help you stay on track and make your projects do-able and exciting.
  • Complimentary Capture the Memories interview book.
  • Fun, new friends who love genealogy like you do!

  1. I was at the library the same week as this group and saw many of them there and at the hotel. I wonder if they were as dismayed as I was at finding out the site is no longer completely available every day at the library. I thought it was wonderful last year when I visited the library to have a full access to the site without having to log into my own subscription. I wonder how many people got home after their trip in years past and signed up for Ancestry after using it at the Family History Library.
    I can understand the people wanting to charge the library for access, and that the cost of that might be more than the Library is willing to pay. What I CANNOT understand is if the church doesn’t wish to pay for what has been offered for free in the past, and Ancestry doesn’t want to offer it anymore, then that is fine. BUT, they have completely blocked access to their site from the servers at the Library, and I could NOT LOG INTO MY OWN SUBSCRIPTION!!! I was completely blocked from accessing my PAID FOR subcription and could not even access my own tree at their site!! It was VERY frustrating and I wonder if anyone else feels the same way…..
