DC Research Trip--Back on Track

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 ( A planning meeting will be held in spring for those members interested.
