SLIG's Advanced Methods Course with Thomas Jones

Are you ready to go to the next level with your genealogical education? If so, consider enrolling in the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy's "Advanced Genealogical Methods." Course coordinator, Thomas Jones, Ph.D., CG, CGL; promises to provide an unbeatable learning experience.

As detailed in the course description: "Students in 'Advanced Genealogical Methods' will learn how to use and assemble evidence to rediscover ancestral origins, identities, and relationships that have been forgotten in the passage of time. The course will address advanced use of evidence from a variety of genealogical records and research in populations for which the usual records are in short supply (including female, enslaved, and impoverished ancestors). Students also will learn how to develop written proof summaries to show their conclusions’ accuracy and create a credible record of their findings for present and future generations of family historians."

There is a prerequisite for this course, which is "targeted to 'high intermediate' genealogists who have completed an intermediate-level methodology course or who have equivalent experiences, and whose research includes original or microfilmed land and probate records. The course will include required prereadings and three optional homework assignments."

Tom is joined by well-known genealogists Judy G. Russell, CG, CGL; Pamela Boyer Sayre, CG, CGL; and Richard G. Sayre, CG, CGL. You can see the detailed line-up of lectures and instructors here:
