MyHeritage Establishes New SLIG Scholarship

We are pleased to announce the formation of the Chris Darrington Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy Scholarship. Established by MyHeritage, this scholarship honors the memory of the late Chris Darrington (1983-2020). 

Chris was the MyHeritage Conference Events Manager, where he managed the exhibit booth, gave demos, and provided assistance to users at genealogy conferences across the United States. A long-standing MyHeritage employee, he previously worked with the Utah-based Sales team and was one of their top-rated salespeople for six years. 

As the representative responsible for coordinating MyHeritage's annual sponsorship of the SLIG Shuttle, Chris always went the extra mile—visiting SLIG, creating a rapport with the SLIG committee and faculty, and demonstrating an interest in the program overall.

Chris always assisted people with great patience, kindness, and humor, and had a natural rapport with genealogy enthusiasts who appreciated his genuine passion for family history. 

Following Chris’s example, applicants should have a genuine passion for family history, a strong desire to improve their research skills through quality education, and an enthusiasm for serving the genealogical community.

Applicants are required to submit a short essay addressing the above qualifications, along with a letter of recommendation. A committee will review applications at MyHeritage; the winning candidate will be provided full tuition and a guaranteed seat in the SLIG course of their choice. 

SLIG would like to specifically thank Daniel Horowitz, Genealogy Expert at MyHeritage, for his leadership in creating this scholarship and his ongoing support of SLIG and higher education for genealogists in general.

Applications open on February 15, 2022, and are due no later than May 1, 2022. Full details can be found here:

SLIG Announces New Director

We are pleased to announce that Amberly Beck will take the reins as the new director of the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG), effective February 1, 2022.

Amberly joined the SLIG committee in January 2021 to fill a short-term assignment, and quickly won the hearts of students and faculty alike with her efficient management of the tasks at hand and polished demeanor. When the Assistant to the Director position came open, she was a natural fit. 

The appointment to director was made in October by Kelly Summers, then-president of the Utah Genealogical Association (UGA), and ratified by the UGA Board of Directors, preparatory to the retirement of Peg A. Ivanyo, who has served in that position for the past seven years.

Amberly is a professional genealogist, speaker, and blogger. Her love for genealogy began as a child pouring over family photos with her grandmother and became a serious research endeavor over 20 years ago. She specializes in French research, is partway through her accreditation journey with ICAPGen, and is working on her BCG portfolio.

Amberly is the mother of three incredible boys, holds a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education, and lives in Utah with her family.

Speaking of her appointment, Amberly said: “I am honored and humbled by the trust Peg and UGA have placed in me to serve SLIG as the next director. SLIG is a vital part of the genealogy community and I look forward to building on the legacy created by Peg, and all of those who came before her.” 

We feel confident that SLIG’s future is in good hands. Welcome, Amberly!

Where's Waldo? or the Fall Certificates?

Where's Waldo? Where in the world is Carmen San Diego? I Spy? 


An introductory note from the director:

Our committee hails from coast to coast and states between. In this virtual environment, we can work from anywhere, and always have. So, when the registrar, Zachary Hamilton, recently relocated to the midwest, took on the task of printing, stuffing, and mailing certificates last fall we didn't expect any challenges. Nor did we expect to be chasing down lost certificates in mid-January. Yet, here we are. 

Truly, you just can't make this stuff up!

Thanks Zachary, for finding and sharing the "rest of the story."


We have grown concerned over the past few weeks about the certificates for SLIG Virtual 2021. We expected them to take a minute to arrive. Who wouldn't when they were sent amid the holidays? But the further we ventured into January, the more concerned we became. 

Location! Location! Location!: The mailing of certificates took place from Missouri. And not just anywhere in Missouri, a very very very small town Missouri. The population of the closest town to our Registrar (Zachary) was 226 people in the 2020 census, and the entire county hosts roughly 7,500 people. 

While there is a lot to be said about small-town life, apparently the smooth operation of the United States Postal Service is not one of them...

Timing is Everything: Certificates for Virtual went out in three batches. Two of the batches (containing the bulk of courses) were sent the week following Thanksgiving and the following week in early December. The last batch of certificates went out closer to Christmas due to a flaw in the printing: a psychedelic warped corner that made a better kaleidoscope than a professional certificate. 

All of these were taken to Zachary's close-by small town USPS branch with no knowledge of what was to come.

Investigation Begins: After weeks of waiting and wondering, and plenty of concerned emails and messages, Zachary went searching.

A truly small town: A call to the local USPS office that accepted the certificates found that – bad news piece number one – the certificates had not left when expected. The small-town branch apparently operates on old and sometimes malfunctioning equipment; large envelopes are often difficult for the machines. 

This results in such items being stockpiled and then taken (often a week or two later) to the larger post office in the nearby city of Springfield, Missouri. 

Not like the registrar wouldn't have been happy to drive the certificates to Springfield himself (~50 min drive) had he been informed!

Big City for the Holidays: So it appears that the certificates were bundled and taken to the "big city" about 2 weeks after they had been originally dropped off, and right in the heaviest part of the Christmas shipping season. The last batch was not delivered until early January. 

Did they go out? Sadly, the story doesn't end there.

Stuck in a Storage Room: As can sometimes happen around the end of the year (look up the horror stories online), the certificates were placed aside for "later shipping" in a storage room. And there they sat, and sat, and sat. 

Until Detective Zachary spent his breaks at SLIG working with the postal service to track them down. Days went by as the USPS searched and searched. 

Alas, as we were wrapping up SLIG, the news came in: the elusive certificates were nicely stacked and forgotten on the back of a shelf in a storage room.

On the Road Again: And now, another holiday over, the certificates should be making their way to students homes. 

Hopefully we never again have to play "Where's Waldo?" with your important mail!

2022 SLIG Wrap Up Keynote: "Coping with Covid and Genealogical Research–Flexibility Needed"–Richard G. Sayre, CG, CGL, FUGA

The theme for 2022 SLIG has been "Flexibility," taking its cue from Genealogy Standard 16. (Board for Certification of Genealogists, Genealogy Standards, second edition revised [Nashville: Ancestry, 2021], p. 14.) Rick Sayre's keynote at the 2022 SLIG Wrap-Up Event spoke to that theme.

Highlights of the keynote address included:
  • Genealogists repeatedly add to and otherwise modify their research plans, meeting Genealogy Standard 16 on flexibility.
  • The Covid pandemic has changed much. Many have struggled over the last two years pursuing their genealogical research. Yet the Genealogy Standards and the Genealogy Proof Standard are enduring. Genealogists must find ways to meet those standards in their research.
  • The Board for Certification of Genealogists has certified and renewed certification during the pandemic at a pace comparable to earlier years. People are finding ways to achieve quality research despite challenges in records access.
  • While we might love attending onsite institutes, we might actually get a more comprehensive educational experience in the flexibility of a virtual offering. Moreover, holding institutes virtually permit more persons to attend than might be possible otherwise.
  • Rick personally changed his mindset when asked to transition to a virtual course. He asked, How can the rest of the faculty and I offer this experience virtually and ensure it meets instructional objectives? He would not offer a course if it could not be done well.
  • To the degree that instructional objectives were met at SLIG 2022, that was due to the flexibility of SLIG, the SLIG staff, faculty, and, importantly, students.
  • Rick gave an example from his own research illustrating guidance from the Genealogy Standard regarding flexibility.
  • He provided several examples of what genealogists can do to further their research to meet the flexibility expected by Genealogy Standard 16. These include:
    • Become proficient in online research.
    • Seek out research partners, such as one's spouse, DNA cousins, or the staff of local societies and archives.
    • Read peer-reviewed journals.
    • Join or form a study group.
    • Exploit webinar archives, such as the Legacy Family Tree Webinars collection.
We greatly appreciate Rick's keynote presentation and his gracious flexibility in reworking his maps course for a virtual setting.

SLIG 2022 Sponsor Highlight: FamilySearch

SLIG Night at the Family History Library has been a longstanding SLIG tradition. This year, David Rencher, Lynn Turner, and the FHL staff provided us with an online night at the FHL, including a virtual tour of the library highlighting recent enhancements.

Highlights from the opening plenary:

  • David Rencher, FHL Director and FamilySearch Chief Genealogical Officer, spoke about some of the changes necessitated by COVID shutdowns and protocols. FHL has a new set of webpages and has made their lookup service and research helps available remotely.
  • Lynn Turner, FHL Assistant Director, led viewers on a virtual tour of the library and provided additional details;
Highlights from the breakout sessions:

      • Registrants will have free access to all sessions through the end of 2022.
      • Future RootsTech formats are difficult to predict, with a hybrid format possible.
      • Offering RootsTech virtually extends its reach much farther than is possible in person.
      • Last year, about 5,000 research consultations were done during the RootsTech week. This year, the target is to do 8,000 consultations.
      • On-the-ground teams have intentionally sought out presenters in other parts of the world.
    • Collections (Bria Corry and Natalie Reese):
      • The collections team includes six to seven full-time employees, some interns, and volunteers.
      • The book digitization team is moving in-house to the FHL, hoping to digitize 10,000 books this year.
      • Anyone can donate a book, PDF, or Word document. Societies sometimes make large donations. (
      • Items in off-site storage can be requested to be pulled for use. Those items then remain in the library.
    • International–B1 and B2 floors (Debbie Gurtler and Raymon Naisbitt):
      • It doesn't matter which floor you are on; you can request a specialist from any geographic area, and they will come to you.
      • The international reference section has been consolidated on one floor.
      • All maps are now in one location on B1.
    • U.S./Canada–2nd and 3rd floors (Jason Harrison and Todd Knowles):
      • Statewide census books and family genealogies are back on shelves.
      • Almost everything is on the shelves, though some rare or unusual books are in Special Collections.
      • FHL is revisiting agreements, as many contracts were made before digitizing technologies.
We greatly appreciate the efforts of the FHL staff in making this virtual visit possible and FamilySearch for their ongoing support of SLIG as a course sponsor.

SLIG 2022: Plenary Session Highlights

"If You Can't Find Your Own Family History, Steal Someone Else's"? 


Anyone familiar with Genealogy Standards published by the Board for Certification of Genealogists might question the sanity of that statement. 

Yet, F. Warren Bittner kicked off SLIG 2022 with a western-themed, historically-accurate case study demonstrating the need to do just that! 

Utilizing diaries, letters, journals, and documents taken from the lives of others, Warren fleshed out the details of the elusive life of Samuel Thompson, correcting a few "documented" inaccuracies along the way.

Samuel was born in Pomfret, New York in 1813 and died in Vernal, Utah in 1892. One of his earliest experiences as a fairly-new member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was participating in "Zions Camp" in 1834. Or was it? In spite of dozens of biographies stating otherwise, Warren demonstrates that Samuel was actually in Kirtland, Ohio building a temple at the time. 

Over a decade later, Samuel was at Sutter's mill when gold was discovered. Or was he? Turns out he was actually at Sutter's Fort, about 45 miles west.

That's just the tip of the iceberg, but you can quickly see where this is going. Warren researched his way through Samuel's published life sketch of migration, marriage, persecution, gold discoveries, and wars, to find a much more accurate history. And where actual records existed, but details lacked as is often the case, Warren utilized what he calls "stolen history" to weave together an accurate picture of Samuel's life.

The moral of the story? Don't steal someone else's history. Oh wait. Do steal someone else's history. Well, that's confusing! How about: don't inaccurately attribute historical events to someone's life, but once you have accurately documented events and no details to fill in the storyline, do "steal" from the diaries, letters, and documents of others to bring your ancestor's story to life.

Or something like that. 

Thanks, Warren, for a very informative evening!


F. Warren Bittner, MS (History), is a genealogical researcher, educator, and author. He is a Genealogical Researcher at AncestryProGenealogists, where he specializes in German and German Immigrant research. He is former owner of an independent research firm, and previously worked for the Family History Library as the German Collection Manager.

Warren has coordinated German research courses for the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG), the Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research (IGHR), and the Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh (GRIP). Known for his extensive research in German and US archives and repositories, Swiss records, and his expertise in late nineteenth-century New York City research, Warren has lectured widely at national conferences and society events. He is published in the National Genealogical Society Quarterly, is a former trustee for the Board for Certification of Genealogists, and a former member of the board of directors for the Utah Genealogical Association.
