Although quite a number of the attendees at the tour are already in-house at the Plaza Hotel in Salt Lake City, more than half will fly in today. Leland and Patty Meitzler will meet them at the airport, with the initial gathering of the group of 85 people in the Salt Lake room in the hotel this evening.

Salt Lake Christmas Tour 2015 Classes & Speakers

saltlakechristmastour.com

The 2015 Salt Lake Christmas Tour is coming together very nicely. I am taking this opportunity to bring everyone up to date.

Most of the classes are scheduled for the 2015 Christmas Tour. A few are still to be announced, but about 2/3 are in place. Thomas MacEntee alone will be giving 10 classes between Monday and Friday. Check out the 2015 Schedule for class titles.

The following speakers are scheduled: Thomas MacEntee, Leland K Meitzler, Lisa Alzo, Kevan Hansen, Dwight Radford, Loni Gardner, Maureen MacDonald, Arlene Eakle, Linda Brinkerhoff, Bruce Buzbee, Mark Olsen, and Anna Swayne. Others will most likely be added.

Paul Nauta, from FamilySearch, will be our dinner-speaker again this year. It’s been three years since he was last with us. He’ll give us an update of what’s new and exciting at FamilySearch.

It’s going to be an exciting year. If you want to come, I’d recommend registering asap, as registrations have been coming in steadily. We may have rooms available right up until the first of December – but then again, it’s always possible that we’ll max out, and cut off registrations.

Have you ever wished you had someone setting next to you that knew how to go about breaking down your genealogy brick-walls? If so, consider joining us on the Salt Lake Christmas Tour this next December. We spend a full week finding elusive ancestors. We’ve been doing it since 1985 – on exactly the same week every year – well, kinda… The Salt Lake Christmas Tour is the first week of December – following the Don’t-Even-Attempt-to-Fly Thanksgiving weekend. Our folks fly the next weekend – much easier! This year is our 31st year, making it the 30th Anniversary Tour.

The tour is typically made up of 60 to 80 enthusiastic genealogists from all over North America – joined by a dozen professional genealogists who work side-by-side with the amateurs in the Family History Library. The pros are there to assist, guide, translate and make the trip to Salt Lake City a success. And it works. Just ask the hundreds and hundreds who have previously attended – and come back for more. The 2015 tour is from December 6 though 12. Check out the website, and register for what may be the trip of your lifetime!
