New SLIG DNA Course

The Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy is excited to announce the inclusion
of a new course:


*"Getting More Out of Genetic Genealogy Research: Intermediate to Advanced
DNA Analysis Techniques"*


Due to the high demand for genetic genealogy education, SLIG has added an
advanced Genetic Genealogy course coordinated by CeCe Moore and Angie
Bush.This advanced analysis course is intended for the genealogist who has
a thorough understanding of genetic genealogy basics and has experience
applying DNA testing to family history research. This is the next step in
genetic genealogy education, with a focus on preparing professionals and
others to work on genetic genealogy cases and strengthen the skills of
those who are already doing so.


This course will examine the methods used by expert genetic genealogists to
thoroughly and accurately analyze DNA testing results to advance knowledge
of an individual?s genealogy. Instruction will include complex case studies
that incorporate multiple types of DNA testing results, analyzed in
conjunction with documentary evidence, as well as cases where DNA test
results are the primary resource, such as in unknown parentage cases.
Coursework will include analyzing and comparing DNA testing data from all
of the companies offering products to the genealogy community with
explanations and demonstrations of the most valuable features and tools for
the genetic genealogist working with large amounts of data. Through active
participation in and completion of this course, the genealogist will gain
essential skills for integrating DNA testing with traditional genealogy
research on an advanced level.


This course will pick up where other genetic genealogy courses have left
off and take attendees to the next level in using DNA as a research tool.
The course will feature top of the line instructors and topics. There are
several prerequisites to the course. Please visit 
www.slig.ugagenealogy.org for
more information.


In addition, SLIG would like to announce that the registration date has
been moved from to allow those travelling to IGHR the opportunity to
register without stress.
