SLIG offers a beyond-the-basics two-year course, which provides in-depth learning on 19th - 21st century U.S. resources and the methodology for using them. Coordinator Paula Stuart-Warren and her expert instructors help students 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. On-site Family History Library support and a computer lab from course instructors provide one-on-one assistance and guidance with your own research.
Suggested prerequisites: Experience researching in a variety of repositories, familiarity with FamilySearch.org and other family history websites, reviewing at least two basic genealogy guidebooks, and previous class room learning related to family history.
Note: These do not need to be taken in any particular order. Part I will be taught again in 2017 and includes hands-on dissecting a document and a class project; researching women; courthouse records, legal savvy; source citations; computer lab, land records; passenger arrival records; passports; WPA, National Archives, and genealogical and historical periodicals.
