SLIG 2017 Highlight: DNA Bootcamp

The Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG) is delighted to welcome back CeCe Moore as a coordinator for a new course in 2017! 

"DNA Bootcamp" is for those who have learned the fundamentals of genetic genealogy and are now ready to dig in and put their education to work. 

This fast-paced course will not only expand upon your knowledge, but will also explore online company tools and third party sites through exercises and hands-on practice in the computer lab.

Please note that this course has the following prerequisites: Attendees must have a strong grasp of foundational genetic genealogy concepts and access to autosomal DNA results from all three DNA testing companies (AncestryDNA, Family Tree DNA and 23andMe). Completion of any of the institute genetic genealogy courses will be good preparation for DNA Bootcamp (as long as you applied what you learned after the course ended). 

For those who have experience working with DNA for genealogical purposes, but have not attended an institute course, exceptions can be made by submitting an essay to the instructor detailing your proficiency in this subject.

Registration for 2017 SLIG opens on July 9th! For more information on the institute, see
