Mr. Myrt and I will be attending the Utah Genealogical Association's Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy this coming week. We'll pick up our registration packets on Sunday evening, and start a intensive week of study at 8am sharp Monday morning. Mr. Myrt is taking the New England/New York course. I'm taking the DC Area Research course. We're also attending box lunch sessions Tuesday through Thursday featuring RootsMagic, Ancestral Quest and Legacy Family Tree respectively.
Some of the daytime courses have openings.
The 2011 Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy will be held 10-14 Jan 2011 in Salt Lake City, Utah at the downtown Radisson Hotel located at 215 West South Temple, Salt Lake City, Utah. Find out more about 2011 SLIG Courses here.
Evening classes are open to anyone, not just SLIG registrants.
