Avoid making unplanned genealogy trips a distance from where you live–particularly if you are unfamiliar with the hours and the facility. Make certain the facility will be open. If visiting the office that holds court records, find out what day(s) of the week are court days and try to avoid those days.

Consider not making your last day of research Friday–that way you’ve got an extra day if you make a last minute discovery.
