Transportation will be provided by the First Financial Bus for the first 17 registrants. Others may carpool.

There is no charge for participation in the trip, but individuals need to pre-register online at www.inwvgs.org.

Those new to genealogy or experienced researchers are invited. The trip will provide opportunities for participants to spend a day accessing a wealth of genealogical resources and information.
