35th Annual Research Trip to SLC

April 23-30, 2023

For the 35th time, OCCGS sponsors a week-long research trip to the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah. This trip provides an exceptional opportunity to use the extensive resources of the largest depository of genealogical reference material in the world for your personal genealogy research. Visit the Members Only, SLC Research Trip page for more information.

You must be a member of OCCGS to go on this trip. Not a member of OCCGS? Read more about the trip on the Information and 2023 Reservation Form.

Volunteer Opportunities

With the library opening back up and visitors coming in to view our collection and do research in person, we have need of new volunteers. Some of these jobs can be done remotely (marked). Training is available for ALL positions. Learn more about our volunteer positions!
