Course Spotlight: Advanced Genealogical Methods

Have you ever wanted a truly in-depth course on methodology? Do you want to take a deep dive into the concepts of the Genealogical Proof Standard? Want to explore methodology in a variety of important record groups? Advanced Genealogical Methods is a premier methodology course that has become a SLIG standard and will be returning for SLIG 2022.

An Exploration in Evidence

This course focuses on the advanced application of evidence from a variety of genealogical sources. The class will explore evidence in the context of many record types, including military, land, tax, and immigration. Students will also have the opportunity to learn about research techniques for groups where typical records are difficult to find. This course allows high intermediate genealogists to continue their methodology education on an advanced level.

Methodology Skills

In addition to expanding student research skills, this course also teaches students to document their research, analyze records, and write on an advanced level. Sessions will cover formulating research questions and plans, identifying and citing sources, resolving conflicts in evidence, advanced DNA methods, and writing. The final session of the course will also advise students on pathways for continuing advanced education.

The full schedule for this course, faculty bios, and course details can be found here.
