Kory Meyerink, one of the instructors there, tells me I should mention my attendance last week at the 2012 Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG). SLIG is an intensive, full-time education event. Attendees receive classroom instruction from industry leading genealogists, individual research time in the Family History Library, and individual consultation from institute faculty. Students sign up for a single track. Tracks concentrate on different localities or methodologies, such as Advanced New England Research.
(Let me make a private shout out to my classmates. Thank you, Linda, for discretely posting my photograph on your blog.)
SLIG is one of several genealogical institutes available throughout the country. These are excellent opportunities for learning. Other institutes are the British Institute (Salt Lake), NIGR (D.C.), IGHR (Alabama), and GRIP (Pittsburgh).
SLIG is produced by the Utah Genealogical Association.
