Be sure to have as many references as possible before you go. Help there is sometimes difficult, when searching for specific areas and places. It can be difficult to locate reference material in library.

What a wonderful service the LDS community has provides for learning to research one's ancestry. The aides are very attentive , knowledgeable and patient. Bring a little information about an ancestor and see what you can discover

Located in the old Utah Hotel dates back to 1912. It's beautifully ornate. And has the Nauvoo Cafe for snacks or lunch. The staff are very helpful and willing to guide you with your search. I highly recommend.

I am planning a trip to come and do Family Research. I have been doing research for years and have most of my hard copy in storage. I have a Family Tree Program and Ancestry Accounts and want and need help finding out more about my and my wifes ancestors.. I am traveling from Rockport TX where we are wintering. We sold our home in Endicott NY and retired and are full timing it in a RV for a while. We are going to seminar with the Escapee RV Geniology Group in Tuscon AZ at end of March then going to work our way to MT by June 25 for an extended family reunion of my Grandmothers sisters family the Ludwig Family of Mt. Wondering if I can set up an appointment to work with someone in advance. I am researching Sanders, Sander, Baumann, Schultz, Brooks, Gilbert Families.
