Research in DC


The Kalamazoo Valley Genealogical Society is traveling to Washington, DC October 23-29 for both research and “tour-on-your-own” – and we hope to see you on the bus! Please share this email with your members.

The Portage Senior Center is sponsoring the trip and will make the decision July 31 whether the trip is a “go” or not. Take a look at the attached brochure and if you’re interested, contact Dawn Shilts at the Portage Senior Center. Her contact information is in the brochure.

An advantage of this trip is the daily drop-off and pick-up at the three research facilities – the DAR library, the National Archives and the Library of Congress. The DAR library is open. The National Archives and Library of Congress are open for researchers by appointment.

Hope you will be able to join us for a great week of genealogical discovery. If you have questions, you can contact the Portage Senior Center (as mentioned above) or our society at this email:
