SLIG Announces New Coordinator for Virtual Intermediate Foundation Course

SLIG is pleased to announce that Annette Burke Lyttle will serve as the Virtual Intermediate Foundation Course coordinator beginning this fall. The course is a recurring staple of SLIG's fall virtual offerings every year. Developed explicitly for SLIG, this course is tailored to the student moving beyond beginner skills and taking their first steps into the in-depth world of institute-level education. 

The course operates on a once-a-week meeting schedule with opportunities to complete enriching learning assignments between class sessions. The course covers locating and utilizing intermediate record types, research standards, methodology, and best practices for developing researchers.

Annette has a bachelor’s degree in journalism and a master’s degree in English and has taught writing and literature at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and Pikes Peak Community College in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Her vast experience in the classroom will be a strong asset for students in the course.

A professional genealogist since 2014, Annette specializes in Midwestern U.S., military, and Quaker research. She recently coordinated "From Sea to Shining Sea: Researching Our Ancestor's Migrations in America" at SLIG in January 2021. She was co-coordinator, along with Steven W. Morrison, of the "Exploring American Quaker Records" course at GRIP in 2020. She serves as an editorial assistant for the National Genealogical Society Quarterly and is a host of the Florida State Genealogical Society’s monthly webinar series. Her articles have been published in the Illinois Genealogical Society Quarterly and NGS Magazine. She owns Heritage Detective, LLC, offering services in genealogical research, writing, and education.
