Colletta and Taylor Team Up to Offer One Fantastic Course!

Two nationally-known experts team up in Course 7: "Settlers in the New World and Immigrants to a New Nation: Researching Ancestors from Overseas" at the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG) in January 2017.

The course has been expanded and more seats are currently available!

John Philip Colletta has long been known for his expertise in immigration. He was the author of They Came in Ships, which is a book on immigration sources. D. Joshua Taylor of Genealogy Roadshow fame will be providing his New England and Colonial expertise in this course.
This course will explore sources and methods for reconstructing the lives of ancestors who came from foreign lands. From the 1590s, when Europeans first settled in territory that would become the Southwest and Florida, through the British colonial period of the Seventeenth and Eighteenth centuries, to the newcomers of every nationality, hue and creed who made the United States their home in the Nineteenth and Twentieth centuries, this course embraces the panorama of immigration history.

John Colletta and Joshua Taylor exploit an exciting panoply of online, microfilm, print and original sources to provide practical instruction, helpful tips, and individual counsel. They also share with students their considerable passion for getting to know some of our most inspiring forebears!

There will be a variety of books offered by Maia's Books during the week of SLIG, including books by Dr. Colletta.
