Paula Stuart Warren will be back at SLIG and has been a staple at the institute for the past 19 years. She provides a quality educational experience for SLIG attendees every year and will be coordinating Part I of her course, Resources & Strategies for United States Research in 2015. Part II will be offered in 2016.
Part I is not the same course as was offered in 2014. Specifically, "[t]his beyond-the-basics course provides in-depth learning on 19th-21st century U.S. resources and the methodology for using them. Probe deeper into the content, origin, location, and interpretation of records. Informative and interactive classroom hours delve into significant records and strategies that take you beyond basic research tools both online and off."
A unique aspect of this course is the on site "Family History Library support and a computer lab from course instructors [that] provide one-on-one assistance and guidance with your own research."
This is not a beginning-level course and the suggested prerequisites are "experience researching in a variety of repositories, familiarity with FamilySearch.org and other family history websites, and previous family history classroom exposure."
Registration for the course opens June 1, 2015. See http://www.infouga.org/cpage.php?pt=42 for information on the 2015 SLIG institute.
