Salt Lake City, Utah

Monday, 9 October 2023 - Saturday, 14 October 2023

We are happy to announce the revival of our annual society research trip to the FamilySearch Library (formerly called the Family History Library) in Salt Lake City.

The trip, led by Stewart Traiman and Evan Wilson, includes:

  • A five-night stay at the Radisson Hotel
  • Five days of uninterrupted research at the largest genealogical library in the world
  • Pre-trip meeting and consultation
  • Guided tour of the library
  • Research assistance by Evan and Stewart
  • Daily hotel breakfast
  • Two group dinners at local restaurants
  • Airport shuttle


$1,050 for double occupancy* or $1,500 for single occupancy (airfare not included). If paying on Eventbrite, additional nonrefundable fees apply.

* There is no guarantee that another double can be found. If no other double is found for a share, the price will be at the single rate.

The trip is capped at 20 participants, so register today to reserve your spot.

This event is open to CGS members only. However, non-members can register by paying a $45 CGS membership fee.

Additional nights can be arranged before and after the event at the reduced group rate.

Payment is due in full within one week of registration.
