Salt Lake City Safari 2021 Research Trip

The 2021 Salt Lake Safari is scheduled for November 7- 14, 2021, a lovely time to visit Salt Lake City. It will depend upon the Family History Library reopening, and on Covid conditions everywhere. We go when it is safe.

The FHL is open until 6 pm Monday through Saturday, with many changes, more books, improved individual work spaces, and more surprises. The Salt Lake Plaza Hotel has reserved 25 rooms for Sunday, November 7 through 14, but they will try to accommodate additional days if you like. Many of us will arrive Saturday to hear the Tabernacle Choir performance Sunday and stay through the week. Our research trip includes a free one- hour class provided by James Warren, of Carmack and Associates, professional genealogists and authors. And one of the highlights of our research trip is the group dinner at the Garden Restaurant. There will be several pre-trip classes via Zoom.

The Plaza Hotel room rates are $95 for standard rooms with an excellent view of the Library, and $105 for deluxe, city view rooms and $105 for king-bedded rooms. We have 25 rooms blocked at the Plaza, and 50 people have expressed interest. For reservations, call the Plaza at 801-606-2410 and ask for the Ventura County Genealogy Society room block and let me know.
