Salt Lake City 2019 Research Trip
Each year The Genealogical Society of Kendall County takes a group of researchers to Salt Lake City to spend a week at the Family History Library. Many records have been digitized and put on-line on FamilySearch, however, there are still many records only available at the library in Salt Lake. Plus you have access to one of the largest genealogical book collections in the world. This has become a regular trip for some members. We hope that you will join us in 201 when we will again travel to Salt Lake City from Sunday, May 5 through Sunday, May 12. We stay at the Salt Lake Plaza Hotel which is located next door to the Library. In addition to spending many enjoyable hours doing research, we usually have a little time for socializing during the day or evening. You do not need to be a member of the society to join our research trip. For more information, click here.
