The Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG) is a week-long intensive educational experience that takes students deep into their topic of choice. Students attending SLIG have the opportunity to advance their education with renowned genealogy experts during a week-long experience, network through special events, and tap into the wealth of resources at the nearly Family History Library.
Sponsored by the Utah Genealogical Association,SLIG is celebrating its 21st year, and is
dedicated to remaining in the forefront of education on methodology and emerging
technologies by offering a variety of courses - from country-focused to technology-based to records rich.
Schedule: SLIG opens with a welcome reception and registration on Sunday evening, January 10th and ends with a banquet on Friday evening, January 15th. Courses 12 and 13 meet on Sunday afternoon. Classes run Monday through Friday.
Course Levels: SLIG is dedicated to offering courses that fill a high-intermediate and advanced-level educational need. We additionally offer a handful of courses structured to help intermediate and transitional genealogists strengthen their core understanding of the research process. Each course offers twenty-five hours of in-depth genealogical instruction over a five-day period, with the exception of the Problem Solving and Advanced Practium courses, which are structured to focus on research with two hours in the classroom daily. Please read the course descriptions carefully.
Research: SLIG offers students the opportunity to research at the nearby Family HIstory Library, running shuttles after class and for course labs.
Special Events: From the networking reception to the final banquet, SLIG offers plenty of opportunities to network with both instructors and colleagues. Special events will be announced in early July.
