Everyone planning to participate in the Genealogical Research Trip to Washington, DC in the week of October 17-22, 2010 now has a less expensive alternative for transportation. New information from Amtrak indicates that reservations can be made now on:
Train 99, leaving Providence at 9:20am on Sunday, October 17
Train 174, leaving Washington at 10:25am on Friday, October 22
Round trip cost is $147 for anyone over age 62, and $174 for everyone else. Reservations can be cancelled with a refund minus a 10% cancellation penalty. The trip each way is approximately seven and a half hours. Each participant is asked to make her/his own reservation, and let David Martin know when it has been made (firstname.lastname@example.org). A planning meeting will be held in spring for those members interested.
