BCGS researchers – originally called the Salt Lake City Trippers – have been visiting Salt Lake City, Utah, USA to since 1975. That year the group of 8 took the bus – at $58 return – and their hotel rooms were then only $10-15 a night.

This slide show shows photos from the second “organized” BCGS Salt Lake City trip in 1980. By then, the group flew – the bus just took too long leaving people only 2 days to spend in the Family History Library.
