Intensive Course in Galician & Russian Empire Jewish Genealogy

If you're interested in a week-long intensive course in Jewish Genealogy (focusing on Galicia and the Russian Empire), then you'll want to jump on this.  I'm one of the instructors in this course at the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG), along with Emily Garber (who's doing the hard work of coordinating everything), Janette Silverman and Marian Smith.  This was supposed to be an in-person class in Salt Lake City and we were entirely full, but thanks to Omicron, it's now virtual.  And this opens seats and opportunities for more people to join.

Now that we no longer need to social distance, we can open the class to a few more people.  The class size is still limited (there are only single digit seats left) because this is a class and not a series of lectures--and we want to be able to still interact with everyone in a course-like scenario.  So if you're interested, register quickly to grab your seat.

The class is coming up soon--January 10-14 (with orientation the evening of January 9).  You can see the list of topics included by going to and going down to Course 4 (and then clicking on "Read More"). 

Hope to "see" some of you at SLIG in a few weeks!

    1. I'm not sure of the current number, but based on people who contacted me with questions after this post, I'd guess under 5.

  2. Since it has changed to Virtual, do you know what the cost will be?

    1. I believe the same as before, minus travel expenses. The costs (depending on UGA membership status) are in the more detailed course description.
