5 Tips For Visiting the National Archives

Are you anticipating at trip to one of the National Archives sites around the country this summer?  Some preparation is required as the NARA is more secure that most of the other sites we visit as genealogist, but it is a treasure trove of information on our ancestors.  Josh Taylor, in his blog, has published an article to help guide you through the process.  Here is a link to his blog.


Member with past copies of TEG

I received the following message in response to the Electronic Delivery Post:


I am in favor of receiving TEG via email for all the reasons you mentioned.  I have been a member of ESOG for a long time and I have kept all the magazines.  Now that I am thinking seriously about moving to a continuing care retirement community, I am left with the decision of what to do with the old issues.  I can't take them with me because of the lack of space.  If anyone wants them, they are welcome to have them. 

I will facilitate contacting the member if you or your organization is interested in his offer. Please contact me here.
