I received the following press release from Elissa Powell, the Co-Director of GRIP. I am excited about this new genealogy institute and the courses they are offering. It is a great addition to the genealogy education community.
February 2, 2012
Registration for the Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh (GRIP) will begin on Tuesday, Feb. 7, at Noon (Eastern Time). The four course coordinators have proven popular at institutes and conferences. Thomas W. Jones, Ph.D., CG, CGL, will coordinate the “Advanced Research Methods” that he also offers at the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy. John Humphrey, CG, will offer his “German Genealogical Research” course that he presented at the Institute for Genealogy and Historical Research at Samford University last year. Paula Stuart-Warren, CG, and D. Joshua Taylor have created new courses for GRIP in which they will each teach in both. These are “Intermediate Genealogy: Tools for Digging Deeper” and “Beneath the Home Page: Problem Solving with Online Repositories.”
The courses are expected to fill quickly and waiting lists will be created when they do. In addition to the daytime courses, students may attend evening lectures which will also be open to the public. Two of the four evening lectures will be sponsored by the Great Lakes Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists, and by the North Hills Genealogists of Pittsburgh.
GRIP courses provide a week-long intensive educational opportunity for hands-on learning in a community atmosphere. For more information please see www.GRIPitt.org where you may subscribe to email notifications.
