Next Steps After Registering for SLIG 2015

     So, it is Saturday, June 14th and you have just successfully registered for the course of your choice in next year's Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG). Congratulations!

     Now what, you ask yourself? Why make your hotel reservations of course! Not only can you register for your SLIG course (, but you can also make your hotel reservations (

     We recommend staying at the conference hotel, the Hilton Salt Lake City Center in order to obtain the full institute experience and have access to special events and networking with the instructors and other attendees. SLIG’s reduced rate is $129/night (reduced from $269/night). This rate is set for up to four people in a room. The rooms are spacious and a two-queen room can comfortably accommodate four people.

     You can find out more about the hotel by visiting their webpage at The hotel's website provides a list of their amenities and services.

     Don't forget when making your plans to attend SLIG next year that the Association of Professional Genealogist's Professional Management Conference (PMC) will be held the Thursday and Friday before the Institute begins. This is a great opportunity to be able to attend two genealogical events in close proximity. While PMC registration is not open yet, you can monitor their website ( for more information.

     Start planning to start the New Year off right by immersing yourself in a specific genealogical topic for a week-long educational opportunity that is unparalleled. Many of the courses are interactive and highlight on site research at the Family History Library (FHL) as well as one-on-one consultations with the course coordinators and instructors. These individuals are genealogical experts and provide guidance and insight that may help you overcome those brick walls and move forward with your research.

     Mark your calendars for next Saturday!
