Field Trip/Road Trip SIG
Saturday 28 January 2023
Library of Congress
Join a group of fellow genealogists and family historians from the Mount Vernon Genealogical Society in a research trip to the Library of Congress!
The next quarterly meeting of the Field Trip/Road Trip SIG will be on SATURDAY 28 January 2023. The usual meeting day for the FT/RT SIG is the fourth Friday each quarter. But due to the last day of the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy falling on that Friday, the outing will be moved to SATURDAY 28 January.
Parking is scarce on Capitol Hill but the Library of Congress is accessible by Metro, less than a 1/2 mile walk from the Capitol South Metro Station. We will meet at the Library and have a brief orientation from one of the librarians. We will then research together or separately with possible communal snack and lunch breaks.
The meeting time for our orientation is dependent on the number of attendees and how many people need new Reader Cards in order to gain access to the reading rooms. Reader Cards are valid for only two years. Anyone attending the outing can register and obtain a Reader Card in person at the Library prior to the outing or on the day of the outing. Information on Reader Cards can be found at https://www.loc.gov/rr/readerregistration.html
If you would like to join the Field Trip/Road Trip SIG for the 28 January outing to the Library of Congress, or if you have questions or comments, please contact Stephanie Campbell at email@example.com. More detailed information will be sent to those expressing interest in attending.
