I know everyone has dreamed of taking that trip to Washington, D.C. to do some research in the federal repositories and libraries. I have. I would love to research in the National Archives and the Library of Congress. There is also the Daughters of the American Revolution Library.
But before attempting to research there, it is best to be prepared so you can make the most of your time. Blogger and genealogist, Angela Packer McGhie, has written a great blog post entitled, "Preparing for a Research Trip to Washington D.C." on her blog, Adventures in Genealogy. She is teaching at the upcoming GRIP (Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh) and her blog post is the handout with great links to these repositories.
