SLIG 2017 Highlight: Diving Deeper Into New England

One of the Genealogy Roadshow's hosts, D. Joshua Taylor helps people discover their roots. In 2017, he will be coming to the Salt Lake Institute for Genealogy to coordinate his course, entitled "Diving Deeper Into New England."

When encountering New England roots, many find a rich treasure of previous research, compiled materials, and records dating back to the early 1600s. Yet, within the branches of our New England roots exist assumptions, errors, missing individuals, and incomplete information. Starting with the colonial period and moving to the 1850s, “Diving Deeper into New England” will take an in-depth look at New England research, specifically focusing on little-known and underused sources.

Individual sessions will provide a deeper historical and social context for New England research, provide specific tools for key New England states, and provide an overview of the research process through a variety of examples and case studies. In addition, consultation sessions and a closing question and answer session will allow time for you to gain advice on your personal New England research with the course coordinator and instructors.
