SLIG 2017 OPENS REGISTRATION JULY 9th

**Gena's Note:  Course 6: Adding Social History to Your Genealogy is just one of the great courses at SLIG. I highly recommend the SLIG experience. You owe it to yourself to attend an institute to further your genealogical goals.



Genealogists from across the nation and around the world travel to Salt Lake City, Utah each January to immerse themselves in a week-long educational experience called “SLIG.”

Going along with this tradition is the rush to get a seat in their course of choice when registration opens each summer. With limited seating to assure quality instruction time, one can imagine that some courses easily fill in a matter of minutes. This year that important date is July 9th – SLIG 2017
registration opens at precisely 9:00 am Mountain Daylight Time, 9 July 2016.

SLIG, or the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy, is entering its 22nd year of providing in-depth instruction for intermediate to advanced researchers. Hosted by the Utah Genealogical Association (UGA), the program will offer 14 courses to choose from in January 2017. In the SLIG tradition, courses focus on research principles, geographic areas, specific record types, methodology, and hands-on application, offering at least 25 hours of meaty instruction with the best teachers the nation has to offer. Some courses include labs, consultations, and yes, even homework.

The full list of available courses provided at slig.ugagenealogy.org includes: course descriptions,
prerequisites, required reading, coordinators and instructors, and a day by day course outline. The
program, which opens on Sunday, 22 January with a welcome reception and ends Friday, 27 January
with the UGA Awards Banquet, is held at the Hilton Salt Lake City Center, with lab and other events at the nearby world-famous Family History Library.

Whether this will be your first time attending, or your 2nd , we welcome you in joining us in elevating genealogical education to new heights.
