Gary Mokotoff <mokotoff@...>
For the fourteenth consecutive year, veteran Jewish genealogists Gary
Mokotoff and Eileen Polakoff will be offering a research trip to the LDS
(Mormon) Family History Library in Salt Lake City >from October 19 - October
The program offers genealogists the opportunity to spend an entire week of
research at the Library under the guidance and assistance of professional
genealogists who have made dozens of research trips to Salt Lake City. It
includes a specially arranged three-hour class on day of arrival introducing
the participants to the facilities and resources of the Family History
Library; a mid-week informal group discussion of progress and
problem-solving and access to trip leaders >from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. when
the Library is open for on-site assistance and personal consultations. For
those new to genealogy, a beginners workshop on the first morning of the
trip introduces them to the wonderful world of Hamburg immigration lists,
U.S. passenger arrival lists, naturalization records and census records.
Social events include a mid-week group brunch for camaraderie and
discussion of successes (and failures).
