I have lately realized that two great genealogy educational events are just
about three months apart next year in Salt Lake City and may be impacting
your genealogical education dollars: The Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy
(Jan. 11-15) and the National Genealogical Society annual conference (April
28- May 1). I was wondering which one people were leaning toward doing:
zero, one, the other, or both?


SLIG 2010 has expanded its offering of courses to twelve this year so there
is a choice for every experience level and many interests from the advanced
beginner/intermediate of "American Records and Research" (where you get
personal help in the Family History Library from the instructors) to
"Advanced Genealogical Methods" (sold out) and "Accreditation and
Certification Preparation" (for those who want to see the in-depth
application tips in a workshop environment presented by the two
credentialing bodies.) Other courses allow you to spend a week in a certain
region (Mid-Atlantic States, Scottish, Central and Eastern European) or on
certain record groups (Land and Court Records, Military). Special topics are
also offered: Immigrant Origins, Computers and Technology or Producing a
Quality Family Narrative. 


Save money by signing up by Nov. 16 (less than 2 short weeks from now) at


NGS 2010 will be held in Salt Lake City and just announced this week that
registration is open at http://www.ngsgenealogy.org/cs/conference_info where
you can see the program and some of the events planned including the BCG
Skillbuilding track throughout the four days of the conference and the BCG
Education Fund's (separate organization) pre-conference Workshop.
Conferences offer a smorgasbord of information, sessions and wonderful
networking opportunities as well as the exhibit hall which this year will
feature a "GenTech" area and presentations. Many special events are planned
including tours (no, not of the real Mines, but a virtual one!) and lots of
help in the Family History Library.


So pick your dates, pick your friends, pick your hotel, pick your
transportation and I'll see you in SLC at one or both events!
