Genealogy – Family History Field Trips

When it comes to genealogy, it’s really NOT “all on line.” If you’re serious about breaking though those “brick walls” in your family tree research, you’ll need to step away from the computer and go on a few field trips.

Family history field trips…to another town, a local cemetery, or another country…can give your priceless results.

Learn how to prepare and how to make the best use of your time!
