image of map with pin

Saturday, September 24 at 11:00 a.m.

Ages 18 and Up

Genealogical tourism is on the rise. What is it? Why is it becoming increasingly popular? Should you consider becoming a genealogical tourist? Discover the answers to these questions, learn some of the national and regional resources now available to the genealogical tourist, find out what to consider in planning, preparing, and packing for such a trip, and hear some practical advice (some learned the hard way). Most important, though, see what you might expect to gain personally from “walking in the footsteps” of your ancestors.

Presented by genealogy and heraldry expert, David B. Appleton.

Registration opens Thursday, August 18.
