SLIG’s Early-Bird Registration is only weeks away, ending on October 31, 2013! Ensure you get yourself a spot in one of the few remaining courses. The following courses still have seats left:

  • American Research and Records: Focus on Families
  • Credentialing: Accreditation, Certification, or Both?
  • Advanced Evidence Analysis Practicum
  • Problem Solving
  • Utilizing Social History
  • Researching in Eastern Europe 

Immerse yourself in a specific genealogical topic for a week-long educational opportunity that is unparalleled. Many of the courses are interactive and highlight on site research at the Family History Library (FHL) as well as one-on-one consultations with the course coordinators and instructors. These individuals are genealogical experts and provide guidance and insight that may help you overcome those brick walls and move forward with your research.

Attendees have time to explore Salt Lake City’s many attractions as well as spend time outside of the course researching at the FHL. The library is a short walk from the Institute’s location and, if available, the Radisson often provides shuttle service to the library.

Another benefit of joining SLIG this year is the ability to attend the Association of Professional Genealogist’s Professional Management Conference (PMC), which will be held the Friday and Saturday before the Institute begins. You can experience two great events being held back-to-back at one location! 

Sign-up before October 31st and you will save over 10% off your registration. Become a member of UGA and increase your savings even more. The registration page can be accessed at
