Myrt's Salt Lake Institute registration

We must always be thinking, learning, growing. Ol’ Myrt here may talk, blog, podcast, teach, cajole and brow beat her readers, listeners and study group members -- but she, too, must consider taking advantage of educational opportunities. Accordingly, though I will be serving as the dinner speaker during the 2009 Salt Lake Institute, I’ve also registered to take a number of classes in addition to coursework to assist with my British ancestral quest.

  • English Research with David Rencher (full course)
  • Plenary Session with Dr. Thomas Jones, Ph.D (evening session)
  • Quick, Complete and Accurate: Document Analysis for Researchers, by J. Mark Lowe (evening session)
  • The Jones Jinx: Tracing Common Surnames, by Thomas Jones (evening session)
  • Using Original and Derivative Sources: How to Evaluate Evidence, by John P. Colletta (evening session)
  • Twenty Years of Stuff. Now What Do I Do?, by Elissa Scalise Powell (evening session)
  • Remembering the War: Civil War Veterans, by J. Mark Lowe (evening session)
  • Discovering the Stories of Your Immigrant Ancestors, by John P. Colletta (evening session)

What classes will you take? Check it out at www.infouga.org.

Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt :)
Your friend in genealogy.
