2011 Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy

The 2010 Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG) has begun. This is the 15th year for SLIG. A special opening breakfast got us off to a great start. My students in Course I are an eager and astute group. It's going to be a fun week (and educational, of course). The did their first project on research planning and did an amazing job. This afternoon, these students will have one-on-one research consultations onsite at the Family History Library.

Mark your calendars now for the 2011 edition of SLIG that takes place from January 10-14 in Salt Lake City. This morning the 2010 Director of SLIG, Thomas McGill, announced that the new Director is Pat Richley-Erickson. Many of you may know her better as Dear Myrtle. I have enjoyed working with Tom and look forward to having Pat in that job. These Directors, the SLIG and Utah Genealogical Association staff and volunteers, course coordinators, and instructors put a lot of time into the workings of SLIG. We do it all for the students who show us why we love to share education about family history.
