SLIG 2018

In January 2018, I attended the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG) and I loved it! I took the class “Taking Your Research to the Next Level” with Paula Stuart-Warren. It was the right class for me. Some stuff I already knew, but I also learned a lot. Well worth it. To learn more about Paula, check out her website. She teaches this class at other locations also.

We also had guest instructors, including Cyndi Ingle of Cyndi’s List and we learned a lot about technology and the Hidden Web. My search skills, already good, improved!

Also had several classes with Debra Mieszala, CG; check out her website.

I plan on attending again next year. January is a good time for me to travel to Salt Lake City, as it is usually a slow time for my usual work.

While in Salt Lake City, I found a great many new records in my own research for my family! Those findings and others will be posted here on my blog, so check back!

ProGen

I am on the wait list for the ProGen online study group. I expected to start soon, perhaps Feb 2018. I got an email that the program is being changed considerably. Instead of an 18 month program, it will be rewritten to a 12 month program, and there will be no Feb 2018 group while they revamp the homework assignments. The new 12 month program should start up on schedule and continue as scheduled starting with the next June 2018 group. I anticipate starting in June, or perhaps October.
