Requires Appointment to attend Registration Signup


Appointments are 1 on 1 only, no group appointments. We have two 30 minute appointments per genealogist during the second half of the session. Please do not sign up for those appointments unless you expect your question to take longer than the normal 20 minute appointment to handle.

Also, given the nature of research, we cannot guarantee your problem will be completely solved in one day, if at all. However, the professional genealogists will do everything that they can to assist and guide you in your research.

If all appointment slots are filled prior to the session, we will be unable to accommodate walk-ins on the day of the event.
