June 2005, V4#6: Genealogy Monday, Jan 5 2009 

When preparing for a genealogy trip, always check to see what information is available online for the repository.  In some cases, the card catalog may be available.  In others, you may apply for a users card and, once it has arrived, even be able to schedule pulls so that your books will be waiting for you at the desk when you arrive at a given repository.

Sometimes there is no substitute for the effort you could put in researching off the computer and outside of your home.  Sometimes this takes the form of traipsing to cemeteries and court houses.  Other times it means taking a trip (sometimes consisting of several days) to a targeted or major research repository. 

When a repository trip is called for, consider traveling with other researchers.  Most groups take travel time as “sounding board” time.  It’s also nice to know someone else already when you enter a repository – even if it everyone’s first trip.  General research trips are offered through lots of places, from a school, library, organization, researcher travel agent, to us: http://www.gregathcompany.com/tours!

When a cemetery/court house trip is needed, go ahead and ask for research travel companions (make an announcement at all your research related organizational meetings, poll you email address book, etc.), you never know who may want to go – for their own research, or just to “get away” for a bit.
