New Asynchronous Fundamentals of Forensic Genealogy Section Opening

Catherine B. W. Desmarais, CG, and the faculty of her SLIG Academy for Professionals 2023 course have agreed to add an additional asynchronous section. For general information about the course, see the SLIG Academy course webpage.

We know that many interested students work full-time during the day and are not able to attend our multi-week courses. SLIG is excited to announce our first-ever asynchronous course option.

This opportunity provides all of the same course content but with the flexibility to work around any schedule. Recorded class sessions will be available to watch at your convenience shortly after the live session.

Weekly live Q&A sessions will allow students to connect with the faculty of that week's sessions. But don't worry if you can't attend those live Q&A sessions. You may submit questions in writing, which will be answered and available to view in recordings.

This new asynchronous section will be limited to thirty participants and will take place between February 17 and April 26, 2003. Openings will be offered first to those already on the course waitlist, and then open to new registrations as seats remain.
