Update on GRIP

The Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh opened registration on February 7th. Of the four courses, Tom Jones' Advanced Research Methods sold out already. The other courses still have some openings.

Intermediate Research: Tools for Digging Deeper in which Paula Stuart-Warren, CG, is encouraging students to bring their own family research for discussion and brainstorming. The classwork will include much hands-on work and discussion during the week. There will be a class research project that begins on Monday.

Beneath the Home Page: Problem Solving with Online Repositories in which Josh Taylor will have you work on your own computer (required). You will be delving into websites, databases, and finding aids that many genealogists miss.

German Genealogical Research
in which you will be able to learn from John Humphrey, CG, one of the experts in the subject.

The limited private dorm rooms have sold out but shared dorm room packages are still available. It is not mandatory to stay on campus but it is an economical alternative to local hotels. The dorm package includes five nights and fifteen meals from Sunday evening, July 22 through Friday lunch, July 27.
