In the month of September 2014, I was traveling through New York state, Ontario, Michigan and Quebec and I did 1964 miles on this 2nd trip. It was truly EPIC!
I will be heading back to Salt Lake City for the British Institute class on Scottish records. This course may not have much to do with Pennsylvania research but it is the foundation of my desire to visit Great Britain.
Last year in October 2013, I took the Sources for Tracing Pre-mid-Nineteeth Cemetery Ancestors course offered by the British Institute in Salt Lake City, Utah, which is sponsored by the International Society for British Genealogy and Family History. http://www.isbgfh.org/
The course was excellent and one of my teachers appeared on an episode this last year of “Who Do You Think You Are?” I was very excited when I saw Paul Blake on the show. http://www.tlc.com/tv-shows/who-do-you-think-you-are.
This year in 2014, I will be attending the Institute again in Salt Lake City and taking Scottish Research: The Fundamentals and Beyond, by Paul Milner. It is time for me to get serious about Scottish research. So I am currently in the process of preparing to attend this course and getting ready for the trip to Salt Lake City. I also plan to take advantage of the opportunity to do more of the family research at the Family History Library. It will be a very intense week of classes and researching.
This will be my sixth trip to Salt Lake City and the Family History Library. https://familysearch.org/locations/saltlakecity-library This library and their online website for their records has contributed greatly to my research successes. https://familysearch.org/search
Well it is time to get back to planning for this trip. One of the requirements is to read a book on Scottish History, so I best go and get my two chapters in.
“The History of Scotland,” by Peter & Fiona Somerset Fry, reprinted several times 1997.
