Fun at SLIG 2019!

     The 24th annual Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy was held January 13-18, 2019 at the Hilton Salt Lake City Center in downtown Salt Lake City. Again, this institute had students from all across the United States and the world! From Alaska to Florida, from Maine to California, and England to Australia. Over 400 people came to Salt Lake City for this world-renowned genealogy institute.

     The Institute covered a wide range of topics from methodology to genetic genealogy, from languages to maps, from ethnic and regional research. This year marked a lot of firsts for us. Our first African-American course, coordinated by LaBrenda Garrett-Nelson, JD, LLM, CG, CGL; our first Native American course, coordinated by Rick Fogarty; and our first sponsored support team, provided by Legacy Tree Genealogists.

     We also introduced our first Academy for Professionals held the week after SLIG. These courses were geared for the professional on topics like professional client writing to business strategies and public speaking.

     Our second successful Tech Day was held on the Saturday between SLIG and the Academy where genealogists could get technological training on various systems and research methodology.

     Yes, our students learn a lot, but they also have fun! Below are some of the many photos from SLIG.

Thank you for all the student's photographs!

Some fun memories...

Until 2020...
