The Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG) is a weeklong intensive educational experience that takes students deep into their topic of choice. Students that attended SLIG had the opportunity to elevate their education with renowned genealogy experts during a week-long experience, network through special events, and tap into the wealth of resources at the nearly Family History Library.
Sponsored by the Utah Genealogical Association, SLIG celebrated its 22nd year and is dedicated to remaining at the forefront of education on methodology and emerging technologies by offering a variety of courses - from country-focused to technology-based to records rich.
SLIG is dedicated to offering courses that fill a high intermediate and advanced level educational need. In 2017, genealogists had the opportunity to strengthen their core understanding by choosing one of fourteen courses. Each course provided twenty-five hours of in-depth genealogical instruction over a five-day period, with the exception of the Advanced Practicum course, which is structured to focus on research with two hours in the classroom daily.

Additionally, students had the opportunity to research at the nearby Family History Library, running shuttles after class and for course labs.
From the networking reception to the final banquet, SLIG 2017 offered plenty of opportunities to network with both instructors and colleagues.
