Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy 2013 Registration Opens Saturday, June 2, 2012

Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy 2013

Each year, genealogists from around the world await with anticipation the opening of registration for the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy. Why? Well many of the courses have limited space and fill up within minutes.  Let me say that rock concert tickets sales have nothing on SLIG registration . . . each year we find out that a specific course took 6 minutes or less to be sold out.

So don’t be left out!  SLIG 2013 will take place January 14-18, 2013 in Salt Lake City and conveniently located at the Downtown Salt Lake City Radisson.  Click here for more information on how to register, accommodations and more. Registration opens at 9:00 am MOUNTAIN Time on Saturday, June 2, 2012.

I will be coordinating a track entitled “A Genealogist’s Guide to the Internet Galaxy” which will focus on how to use online tools to further your genealogy research.  Instructors will include Josh Taylor, Kimberly Powell, Paula Stuart-Warren, Michael Hait, Richard G. Sayre and Pamela Boyer Sayre and yours truly, Thomas MacEntee.

About Thomas MacEntee

What happens when a “tech guy” with a love for history gets laid off during The Great Recession of 2008? You get Thomas MacEntee, a genealogy professional who’s also a blogger, educator, author, social media connector, online community builder and more. Thomas was laid off after a 25-year career in the information technology field, so he started his own genealogy-related business called High Definition Genealogy. He also created an online community of over 3,000 family history bloggers known as GeneaBloggers. His most recent endeavor, Hack Genealogy, is an attempt to “re-purpose today’s technology for tomorrow’s genealogy.” Thomas describes himself as a lifelong learner with a background in a multitude of topics who has finally figured out what he does best: teach, inspire, instigate, and serve as a curator and go-to-guy for concept nurturing and inspiration. Thomas is a big believer in success, and that we all succeed when we help each other find success.
