Salt Lake Institute: Day #5

Friday marks the last day of classes at the 2011 Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy, but that didn't' mean our instructors let up on our studies. Ol' Myrt here made some quick notes on my Facebook page, so I wouldn't forget to share some links with my DearREADERS.

Our day concluded with a banquet to honor our course coordinators and instructors. In addition two special awards were given to members of the genealogy community.

Thomas W. Jones, Ph.D., CG, CGL, FASG, FUGA was honored as the recipient of the UGA Silver Tray award for his work editing the National Genealogical Society Quarterly. Thomas served again as a Salt Lake Institute Course Coordinator for Advanced Methodology.

Paula Stuart-Warren, CG was honored as the newest Fellow of the Utah Genealogical Association.

Debbie Mieszala was our dinner speaker. She is a Certified Genealogist(sm) specializing in 20th century research, the Midwest, and forensic genealogy. She spoke about her 'scary' grandmother -- not your typical milk and cookies type. A gifted speaker, Debbie had the audience in stitches.

Happy family tree climbing!
