The Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG) is a week long institute with 11 tracks on various genealogy topics. The 2011 institute will be held January 10th to the 14th in Salt Lake City, Utah at the downtown Radisson Hotel. This location is only one block from the Family History Library, and there will be time after classes to research in the library. There is still room in 10 of the 11 tracks, and the early bird discount is in effect until October 30th.
I attended the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy in January of 2009 and thoroughly enjoyed the track on Professional Level Research. I will be returning to participate in the 2011 institute in the Advanced Methodology track. I have attended several genealogy institutes, and enjoy the focused education they provide. Some of the best genealogists in the country are going to be instructors in these courses.
