Pamela Boyer Sayre - How to research in bunny slippers?

Pamela Boyer Sayre has been a regular coordinator at the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG). She will be back again in January 2017 to coordinate her course, entitled "Researching in Washington, D.C., without Leaving Home." That is home in your bunny slippers!

Pam and her intructor team will be discussing some of the massive resources that are available in the Washington, DC-area and other federal repositories and how to access many of them through the Family History Library (FHL), websites, and published sources.

Records from the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), the Library of Congress (LC), the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) Library, and many other repositories will be explored. Students will learn to use finding aids, online catalogs, websites, interlibrary loan, and the holdings of the FHL to find, analyze, and understand federal records spanning the eighteenth to twenty-first centuries.

This week, Pam will be presenting at the National Genealogical Society's conference being held in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Her topics include:

  • "Pathways to Success: How to Learn New Things"
  • "Private Land Claims (LS)"

We hope you have the opportunity to attend the NGS conference and learn from our knowledgeable and skilled course coordinators.

Please keep referring back to the SLIG website at for current information on the 2017 SLIG institute. We hope you will be joining us in January 2017!
