On the Road Again:

Practical Tips for Successful On-Site Research

Saturday, February 8, 1pm-3:30pm

Presented by Pam Brett

CGS Classroom 


A research trip to one's ancestral home can be extremely rewarding, but also presents many challenges. Over the last 20 years Pam has visited 18 states and the District of Columbia to conduct research on her family that “came early and moved often.” Well-planned on-site research will increase your chances of answering your most perplexing research questions and enhance understanding of the lives of your ancestors. Although focused on the United States, you will learn practical tips on how to plan your trip wherever you choose to travel.




Pam Brett began serious pursuit of her family history in 1999. Most of her ancestors came to America early and moved often, leading to research in 31 states and the District of Columbia. She hopes to share skills acquired from many years of beginner's mistakes to help participants to focus their personal goals and to acquire new understanding of the lives of their ancestors.    






Pre-registration is required. Class size is limited so register early to confirm your seat. Walk-ins will not be admitted.


CGS members enjoy reduced admission, $10.00*.


Non-member admission fee is $30.00* and can be applied towards a new one-year CGS membership the day of the class.




Credit card payments will be processed by Eventbrite.
