Hopping a train to FGS/NEHGS BostonSharon Sergeant of Waltham, MA shared this with the blog. Thanks, Sharon!
Below you will find train, commuter rail and subway routes to The Federation of Genealogical Societies Conference at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston this week (August 30-September 2). Note handicap accessible station icons in the links. Bus routes references are also available on the system wide map.
While Boston traffic will be light during this pre-Labor Day vacation week, parking and hotel savings outside the city, combined with the extensive public transportation system, is a very convenient option. Read More
Email me if you are interested in hotel recommendations in Waltham - convenient to the Federal Archives, Lexington/Concord side trips and both Belmont and Waltham train connections.
