SLIG 2023: Advanced Genealogical Methods

Are you an intermediate-level genealogist, comfortable with research but ready to tackle more challenging and complex genealogical problems? Do you want to learn more advanced research skills? Maybe it's the right moment for you to take Advanced Genealogical Methods!

Advanced Genealogical Methods, coordinated by Paul K. Graham, AG, CG, CGL, addresses the advanced use of evidence derived from various genealogical sources and explores research techniques for populations for which the usual records are in short supply. You will learn how to assemble and use evidence, document your research, and develop proof summaries to reach accurate conclusions and create a credible record of your findings.

Faculty includes:

  • Thomas W. Jones, PhD, CG, FASG, FUGA, FNGS
  • Judy G. Russell, JD, CG, CGL
  • Richard G. Sayre, CG, CGL, FUGA
  • Paul Woodbury, MEd, AG
This intense course is intended for high intermediate genealogists who have completed an intermediate-level course or have equivalent experience. Their research has led them to encounter relationships that cannot be documented only with direct evidence. Students are expected to have taken at least one DNA test.

Students are also encouraged to obtain and read Mastering Genealogical Proof by Thomas W. Jones before the start of the course.

Watch this interview with course coordinator Paul K. Graham:

Advanced Genealogical Methods is scheduled to meet online January 23–27, 2023. All SLIG 2023 courses will be offered virtually this year. (See you in person in Salt Lake City in 2024!)

See the SLIG 2023 Courses web page for more information, including updates.

SLIG 2023 registration opens Saturday, July 16, at 10:00 am MDT.
