Get Ready for Genealogy Research Trips With This Month’s Ultimate Collection

By Diane Haddad

Are you hitting the road (or air) this summer for family history—whether your destination is a library, FamilySearch Center, courthouse, cemetery or ancestral hometown?

You can get the most out of your trip—and save money while you’re at it—by using the advice in our Ultimate Research Trip Collection to prepare for your trip. Here’s what’s in it:

  • Genealogist’s Research Trip Planner e-book download: This book (which was my pet project for a couple of weeks) has sections on planning research trips, what to pack and working out your budget; accomplishing your research objectives at the library, cemetery, FamilySearch Center or courthouse; and walking in your ancestors’ shoes via museums, re-enactments and historic trails.
  • Family Tree Pocket Reference: This pocket-size book has handy reference material you can look up in a snap, including glossaries, acronyms, timelines, census facts and figures, common names, immigration statistics and much more.
  • Cemetery Research 101: Family Tree University Independent Study Course download
  • Gravestones “Oldstone” Rubbing Kit for making rubbings of ancestral tombstones

100 copies of this collection will be available only during June, at a savings of more than 60 percent. When they’re gone, they’re gone! Learn more about the Ultimate Research Trip Collection at Family Tree Shop.
