Have you ever wished you could get into a genealogy institute course that has been sold out for months? Now is your chance! The Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG) is considering adding a second section of the Advanced Evidence Analysis Practicum course. If you would like to participate in the course held January 14 - 18, 2013, in Salt Lake City then go to the SLIG website, scroll down to Course 10 and click "Waiting List Signup Form." If there are enough interested to fill a second section then you will be invited to register for the course.
The Advanced Evidence Analysis Practicum is a different type of course where the focus is hands-on experience solving genealogical problems. The students are given a new case to work through each day and then gather to discuss the solution with classmates and top-notch instructors (see names below). The cases are all brand new for 2013 and cover a variety of geographic locations and time periods in addition to providing experience with different methodologies. Students will work to analyze and correlate evidence as well as conduct additional research to solve the cases. This course is designed for advanced genealogists who enjoy testing their skills and expanding their education with hands-on experience analyzing evidence and working on complex cases.
