About the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy

The Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy has been providing top-notch 
genealogical education for fifteen years. The courses are primarily focused 
at the advanced level, with Course 1: American Research and Records Parts 1 
and 2 with Paula Stuart-Warren, providing a good intermediate foundation. 
SLIG is structured in "tracks". Each track equates to either a locality or a 
methodological subject. Each track provides at least twenty hours of 
in-depth instruction. Students choose one track for the week and leave with 
a deeper understanding of their chosen topic than a traditional conference 
can impart. SLIG is dedicated to providing a forum for the best genealogical 
educators in the field to present their knowledge to avid family historians.
