Salt Lake Christmas Tour: Announcement from Leland Meitzler  


We want to invite you to join the Salt Lake Christmas Tour this coming December.

The Salt Lake Christmas Tour is the genealogy research trip where you can find ancestors quickly – and break your brick-walls! Now in its 32nd year, the Tour is renowned for the genealogy research success of its attendees, many of whom come back year after year. The 32nd annual Salt Lake Christmas Tour will take place on December 4 through 10, 2016

Most attendees will fly in on December 4, and fly out on December 11.

One of the major advantages of the Salt Lake Christmas Tour is that there is no waiting for microfilm to be shipped from afar. If you don’t find your family on one film, just move on to another! If your ancestors aren’t mentioned in one book, there are often dozens more in which you may find them! It’s genealogy research at its finest!

There are numerous trips to The Family History Library, sponsored by genealogical societies and commercial firms. However, The Salt Lake Christmas Tour has been highly successful because it has the highest ratio of professional researchers to attendees of any genealogy research tour using the Family History Library. You’ve always got the help you need to overcome your difficult research problems!  You can research your ancestors with the help of experienced professional genealogists. The Salt Lake Christmas Tour is known for the quality of the professional genealogists that work with the attendees on a daily basis – Monday through Saturday. The Christmas Tour typically has professional genealogists available daily for consultation from 9 am until near the time when the library closes. Professionals currently planning to work the 2016 Tour are: Lisa A. Alzo, Linda Brinkerhoff, Arlene Eakle, Billy Edgington, Loni Gardner, Kevan Hansen, Holly Hansen, Stan Lindaas, Ruth Ellen Maness, George Ott, Dwight Radford, and Trudy Schenk. The Salt Lake Christmas Tour is led by Leland K. Meitzler, Donna Potter Phillips and Maureen MacDonald. 

Thomas MacEntee, the creator of, and a motivating force behind genealogy bloggers and social media genealogists, will be with us again this year, and will be giving a total of 10 lectures. 

Lisa Alzo will again be consulting with attendees, as well as giving 5 lectures! A total of 37 classes as well as daily assisted research are offered this year.
