SALT LAKE CITY RESEARCH TOUR 2019

September 15-22, 2019

We invite you to join us for a genealogical tour to the world-famous Family History Library of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints located in Salt Lake City, Utah.

NAGC Member Fee: $1250 Non-Member Fee: $1350

Please note that registration does NOT include airfare; all arrangements for travel must be made by each tour participant.

Participating in this tour will give you an opportunity to work with the largest collection of genealogical materials in the world! If you would like to spend some worthwhile research time at a wonderful facility, this is the tour for you!

Jerry Paulson, Naeseth Chair for Genealogical Research & Publication at the NAGC & NL, will assist you with your research and be available for personal consultation. Jerry has extensive experience as a genealogical researcher. He has taught courses in genealogical research and Norwegian cultural topics at Madison Area Technical College, and has led numerous research tours to the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. Knowledgeable library staff and volunteers will also be available. Together with all these resources, your genealogical questions will be addressed.

The Salt Lake Plaza Hotel has been chosen for the overnight accommodations because it is located next to the library. This means a very easy short walk between the two facilities.

Contact Jerry Paulson at (608) 255-2224 or at gpaulson@nagcnl.org, if you would like further information. Let us know as soon as possible if you would like to take part in this tour. Enrollment is limited to 12 participants.

Testimonials

“Dear Carol, Thanks so much for your help in finding our ties to John Hansen Sørbrøden! My sisters and I had a wonderful trip to Norway. We joined Michael (Bovre's) tour group for two Eidsvoll days and rented a car to visit Berg church and the farm named Sørbrøden.  Of course I have more puzzles that could be researched....sometime I will need to get myself organized and send them to you!”

- Karla (Michigan)
