Advanced Practicum -- Another Chance to Participate

Have you considered taking the Advanced Evidence Analysis Practicum course at the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy? Well, here is your chance to get in. The first section of the course has filled, and a second section has been opened, so there is space for 15 more participants. Click here for more information or 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). 

New for 2014
  • The cases are all brand new for 2014 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. 
  • Also new for 2014 is the chance to work together with fellow students on one of the cases. This group project will allow more interaction and a chance to see how other genealogists approach research problems.
  • The research study that had been conducted by Thomas W. Jones and Angela P. McGhie along with this course has concluded, so participants will NOT be asked to fill out questionnaires on the cases they complete. 
  • Participants will submit bios ahead of time and they will be share with all the course registrants so that they can get to know each other better and to encourage networking.
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.
