How to Plan a Research Trip April 21, 2018
COLCHESTER–Contrary to popular opinion, not all genealogical research can be conducted online. Eventually, most serious researchers decide they have to visit repositories in other states and other countries. For most these trips have to be planned within a context of limited funds and limited time. So planning well is the key to maximizing a trip’s benefits. Using case studies which include Sharon’s trip to Ireland, Sharon Flaherty & Ed McGuire will describe how to successfully plan and organize an enjoyable research trip.This talk will include a handout with notes, packing lists, links to trip planning resources, helpful tools to take and a research trip checklist. Classes at the Vermont Genealogy Library are $10 and run from 10:30 a.m. to noon. The library is located on Hegeman Ave, Fort Ethan Allen, Colchester. Visit our website www.vtgenlib.orgor call 802-310-9285 for more details. Visitors and folks new to research are always welcome. Bring what you know and someone will help you get started.
