It's not too early to sign up for the 8th annual CGS Salt Lake City Research Tour, April 13-20, 2008. CGS President, Jane Lindsey and CGS Research Director, Nancy Peterson return again as volunteer leaders of this very popular trip to the Family History Library.

Accommodations are at the Shilo Inn, located three blocks from the Family History Library. The Shilo provides free high-speed internet access in every room.

I imagine that most people attending these society trips to the Family History Library must return again and again.

I am wondering as more and more of the records come online if visitation to the FHL will drop off considerably? Have you seen any projections about this?

Virginia,
Yes, I am one of those who returns every year with CGS. I haven't seen anything about the progress of the digitization project and how that might impact the FHL but I will ask the question next month at an upcoming CGS meeting at the Oakland Regional Family History Center: "Amazing New Offerings at the Family History Library." I'll keep you posted.

Kathryn, I've spoken with patrons of my local Family History Centers about their treks to the Family History Library, and they were always very appreciative of being able to visit.

Thank you in advance for keeping me posted!
