Spend some time away from the everyday trials and tribulations! Come out for a weekend of genealogy and family history lectures, learning and sharing. Preliminary scheduling calls for lots different session times. 

Leave the cell phones, pagers and internet at home (or office) and get back to basics in the natural beauty of this rural setting, low-stress, retreat. All lodging (in modern dormitories), meals, door prizes, refreshments, goodie bags and as much genealogy (with related topics) as you want are all included in the low price of the full retreat package. You (you know you want to come) may choose to participate in as many or as few, scheduled genealogical activities as you prefer. Come for the lectures or for the quiet time to finally get your workbook(s) in order!  While dorm rooms don't include internet/phones, they have ample desk areas with plug ins for GEDCOM or other computer file work.

This positive, friendly, environment will be filled (though space is limited) with genealogists and researchers ready to learn and network while letting the fall colors and campus sooth the stress of every day life away.  Our attendees will inhabit just one dorm for the weekend again this year.  While there may be other groups on campus, all groups understand and welcome the retreat spaces and we do have a maximum number we'll allow.  This is because, like shopping, while large crowds may be fun, a retreat should be getting away from it all.  Our goal is, even with 3 room-mates in a suite, you won't feel crowded.

Full retreat attendees can arrive Friday for the first session or in time to settle in before dinner and evening session starts. Saturday has a full day of sessions, meals and fun scheduled. Sunday, attendees rise to a continental breakfast and more classes offered before the campus closes.

for 2007! Referral Bonus - Bring your friends and save on the all inclusive weekend genealogy and history package.

Bring your favorite linens (not furnished) and revisit your earlier years as we combine genealogy with echoes of summer camp.  

Lots of different topics throughout the weekend!

October is Family History Month!
