Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy 2013

Thinking about attending the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy in 2013? The organized folks at the Utah Genealogical Association already have the roster of talented teachers posted. Here is the list:

This is going to be a hard decision...

Happy Saturday!

Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy

Family History Library
What a week! Exhausting, exhilarating, emotional, euphoric. From beginning to end, every  minute of the week brought new information and discoveries. My brain is filled to the brim with ideas and resources for researching family history and furthering the genealogies of my family and yours.

I have to laugh when I look at my last post in which I said that I would blog each day of the  Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy. That would be like asking a skier to stop skiing in the most beautiful, deep powder he had ever seen and just write about skiing while the other skiers go whizzing past him. Sure I am a blogger and I love to blog, but I was in Salt Lake City learning with some of the top genealogists in the country and every minute outside of that time I was researching in the Family History Library. There was simply no time to blog, unless I wanted to give up my beauty sleep, which was not going to happen. Each night I literally fell into bed exhausted. 

American Research and Records with Paula Stuart-Warren was the perfect class track for me. Some of it was review, but it was review in a good way. It caused me to pause and reflect and then redirect my energies toward resources that I haven't used recently. Paula gathered several other phenomenal teachers for her track including; Cath Madden Trindle, CG; D. Joshua Taylor, MA, MLS; Debra Mieszala, CG; John Philip Colletta, Ph.D; Kory Meyerink, MLS, AG, FUGA; and Karen Mauer Green, CG.  American Research and Records was light on homework, which was perfect for me as it allowed time for personal research at the library.  

Paula did give us a group project, which I enjoyed because we got to know some of our classmates during our research.  Hi to my group mates Denise, Raylene, Bonny, Jaycee and Todd. You guys were great! The entire class worked on a Kentucky family with the surname of Hedges, so if you are a Hedges with Kentucky roots, let me know. We may have some information to share with you.

Will I return to the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy? You bet! Hopefully next year in January 2013. I took two evening classes with John Philip Colletta, Ph.D and he mentioned that he is putting together a new writing track. Keep your fingers crossed. Will I see you there? 

Happy Friday!
