Invitation to the October Family History Library Retreat 2013

The October Family History Library Retreat 2013 will take place from October 28 to November 1 at the Salt Lake Plaza Hotel just steps aways from the Library. Presented by Family History Expos, this is a great opportunity to get some serious individual research help at the Family Search Library from top notch research consultants. Each day begins with a one hour class at the hotel and then all day at the Library with another one hour class at 5:30 in the evening. You can either relax in the evenings or return to the library for research on your own. The consultants will be at the Library all day to assist you individually with your research questions.
