Ready to go to SLC on a research trip?


Well, they are getting ready at the Medicine Hat Genealogical Society, but they still have room for more members!

They will travel by motor coach, and it will depart from Medicine Hat on May 3rd, with pickup in Lethbridge. They will overnight in Butte, Montana, arriving in Salt Lake City on May 4th. The group departs Salt Lake City on May 9th overnighting in Butte, Montana and arriving in Lethbridge and Medicine Hat on May 10th.

It includes motor coach, accommodations, two breakfasts, taxes and gratuities. Partners are welcome to come, but if they are not researching, they must arrange their own entertainment.
