Are you serious about your genealogical education?

Then the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG) can help you achieve your education goals!

Thomas W. Jones wrote an article, entitled Post-secondary Study of Genealogy: Curriculum and Its Contexts. In it he states that "[p]ractice that meets the field’s standards requires ethics, knowledge, and skill worthy of any college graduate. Genealogy has been accurately described as a “discipline” and characterized as “rigorous.”

With thirteen tracks to chose from, there is a topic that can help you improve your genealogical skills: 
  • Methodology courses covering advanced topics, legal concepts, evidence analysis, problem-solving and writing a quality family narrative. 
  • Records-based courses covering land and church records. 
  • Technology courses covering beginning to advanced DNA analysis. 
  • Location-based courses covering research in New York, the South, and the United States.
With only eight courses left with seats remaining, now is the time to register. For more information, see Dr. Jones' article can be found at
