Advanced Methodology with Thomas W. Jones

The Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG) is proud to have Thomas W. Jones with us again in 2017 to coordinate his course, "Advanced Genealogical Methods." Students 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. 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.

If you are attending the National Genealogical Society's conference in a few short weeks, you will have the opportunity to experience for yourself Tom's knowledge and expertise. He will be presenting the following lectures:

  • "Going Beyond the Bare Bones: Reconstructing Your Ancestor's Lives"
  • "Systematically Using Autosomal DNA Test Results to Help Break Through Genealogical Brick Walls"
  • "Missing Something? Getting the Most out of Genealogical Evidence"
  • "Solving Genealogical Problems with Unimaged Original Records"

I would expect that you will be ready to hear from Tom after listening to these great lectures. If so, be sure to check for updates on SLIG registration. His course fills quickly and is an educational experience that you do not want to miss!

Please note that his course has prerequisites: this intense course is targeted to “high intermediate” genealogists who have completed an intermediate level methodology course or who have equivalent experiences, and whose research includes original land and probate records or digital or microfilmed images of land and probate records.
