SLIG Goes Virtual

We just completed the beta testing for our new Virtual Advanced Evidence Analysis Practicum course.  Coordinated by Angela Packer McGhie, CG, and modeled after her Practicum course that runs at SLIG each year, this new virtual course will allow participants to attend and do the research from the comfort of their own home.
Five cases have been selected from those presented in past SLIG Advanced Practicum courses. Students will have a full week to work the research in around their regular schedules.  Registration opens June 25th for SLIG 2016 participants and July 9th to the general public.  Details:

Just One Month to SLIG Registration

Learn from the field’s top educators. Obtain in-depth instruction.  Network with respected experts.  Just three of the five top reasons to attend the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy, to be held 22-27 January 2017 at the Hilton SLC Center hotel.  Not to mention the fourteen amazing courses from which to choose.
Registration opens July 9th at 9:00 am MDT, and as most of you know, several courses fill quickly.  How quickly?  Let’s just say you definitely want to be logged onto the website and ready to go well in advance.
