Mark is the coordinator for the course entitled "Swing Across the South," which will be held at SLIG in 2016. While this course is sold out for 2016, it is an essential course for those conducting Southern research.

Southern research requires a careful understanding of how records were created, and how they have been maintained since their creation. Consideration of lost or missing records is included. The approach is interactive, with more time spent looking at records. Each day will start with a developed plan, leading to wise record choices, continuing with the analysis of information, followed with properly cited discoveries, ending with a review of evidence and a summary of what was learned, while leaving a next step for tomorrow. Additionally, the course covers basic records from Alabama, George, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Missouri, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and even Tennessee.

There are sti
ll eight courses left that have seats remaining for the 2016 institute. For more information, go to
