Immerse yourself in a specific genealogical topic for a week-long educational opportunity that is unparalleled. Many of the courses are interactive and highlight on site research at the Family History Library (FHL) as well as one-on-one consultations with the course coordinators and instructors. These individuals are genealogical experts and provide guidance and insight that may help you overcome those brick walls and move forward with your research.

Attendees have time to explore Salt Lake City’s many attractions as well as spend time outside of the course researching at the FHL. The library is a short walk from the Institute’s location.

When making your travel plans, you may also want to consider attending the Association of Professional Genealogist’s Professional Management Conference (PMC), which will be held the ​Thursday and Friday before the Institute begins. You can check their website (https://www.apgen.org/conferences/index.html) for more information. You can experience two great events being held back-to-back at one location!

Sign-up before October 31st and you will save over 10% off your registration. Become a member of UGA and increase your savings even more. ​For more information on the Institute and registration information go to http://www.infouga.org/cpage.php?pt=42​.

Thomas Jones’ course “Advanced Genealogy Methods” sells out in a matter of minutes every year. I’ve been attending SLIG for 11 years and plan to continue. It’s well worth the money to learn from the best. A couple of my fellow students in past years have shared family information that broke down two of my brick walls — an added bonus! Plus, you have the Family History Library at your disposal.
