Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy 2012 Info

As you may or may not know, the UGA website is getting a brand-new look. It's going to be great and will be unveiled in the next month or so. But in the mean time you man be looking for information on our upcoming Salt Lake Institute. The 2012 Institute will run January 23-27, 2012 with a Sunday orientation social on the 22nd. We're later this year so you can attend both SLIG and RootsTech (Feb. 2-4, 2012) in one trip. There are a few days in between, and we're working on putting together some great genealogical and recreational opportunities during that time--stay tuned!

Registration will open June 4, 2011 at 9:00 am MT, and will be accessible through our website We will not be staggering registration times. The early-bird tuition is $350 for UGA members and $400 for non-members; UGA membership is $35/year. We're still working out if the new system will allow registrants to purchase their membership and get the discounted rate in the same transaction. I'll let you know as soon as I know--but it couldn't hurt to purchase the UGA membership a few days ahead of time just in case (plus you'll be early enough to get the June issue of Crossroads).

We are offering twelve great courses this year, coordinated by some of the best in the field. Some are past favorites, while some are brand new this year!

  • Course 1: American Research and Records: Focus on Families with Paula Stuart-Warren, CG, FUGA
  • Course 2: Advanced New England Research (in conjunction with NEHGS) with D. Joshua Taylor
  • Course 3: Welsh Research with Darris Williams, AG
  • Course 4: Swedish Research with Geoffrey Morris, AG
  • Course 5: Midwest U.S. Research with Kory Meyerink, MLS, AG, FUGA
  • Course 6: Genealogy Software and Research Tools with George Morgan
  • Course 7: Principles of Effective Genealogy Librarianship with Drew Smith, MLS
  • Course 8: Beyond the Library: Using Original Source Repositories with John Phillip Colletta, Ph.D., FUGA
  • Course 9: Advanced Genealogical Methods with Thomas W. Jones, Ph.D., CG, CGL, FASG, FUGA, FNGS
  • Course 10: Advanced Evidence Analysis Practicum with Angela McGhie
  • Course 11: Advanced Research Tools: Land Records with Rick Sayre, CG and Pam Sayre, CG, CGL
  • Course 12: Problem Solving with Judith Hansen, MLS, AG

All courses can hold up to 30 registrants with the exception of Problem Solving, which is not restricted, and the Advanced Evidence Analysis Practicum which is limited to 25 due to the heavy discussion element. A brochure with more detailed information on these tracks, including the individual classes, will be placed online in the next few weeks--I'll let you know when it's available. Several courses filled quickly last year and I expect many of them will this year as well.
