SLIG 2017 Highlight: Researching your Norwegian, Danish, and Icelandic Ancestors

Elaine Hazleton and Jeffrey M. Svare are accredited genealogists with the International Commission for the Accreditation of Professional Genealogists. They have combined their expertise to co-coordinate this course, which will discuss not only the most-frequently used records such as the church and census, but it will also include in-depth instruction into the probate and court, taxation, land and property, military, minorities, and DNA resources. 

Additional information will be shared about local organizations, National Archives online catalogs, as well as Scandinavian-American organizations and their record availability. Case studies regarding the use of these records will provide an in-depth knowledge you have never had before! They have also tapped the expertise of Finn Karlsen, retired, Norwegian Regional Archives, Trondheim, Norway, who will also be providing instruction.

This is a wonderful opportunity for students to explore their Norwegian, Danish, and Icelandic roots!

Registration opens July 9th. See for more information on the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy.
