SLIG 2018 Course Highlight: Taking your Research to the Next Level

Taking your Research to the Next Level

Paula Stuart-Warren, CG, FMGS, FUGA

It's time. We all reach the point where we need to learn about other resources and delve more deeply into those we already know. This is the way we take our research to a higher level, solve problems, and advance our family history. This course provides in-depth learning on 19th-21st century U.S. resources and the methodology for using them. We probe deeper into the content, origin, location, and interpretation of records. It's not just listening to lectures, but interactive classroom time that takes you beyond basic research tools. On-site Family History Library support and a computer lab from course instructors provide one-on-one assistance and guidance with your own research.

Suggested Prerequisites

Experience researching in a variety of records and repositories, familiarity with and other family history websites, reviewing at least one basic genealogy guide, and previous classroom learning related to family history.

Suggested Requirements

Students are encouraged to bring a laptop computer or tablet for project work during the week.
