Salt Lake Institute early birds fly away at the end of next month

The Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy was the first institute I ever attended, back in January 2009. If it hadn't been for a last-minute reminder post on an email list, I would have missed it. I've been back every year but one since then, and I'll combine being a student and a teacher this coming January.

So I recommend it to all ambitious genealogists, and am happy to pass on the news from the Utah Genealogical Association blog that early-bird discounts of more than 10% are still in effect through September and October. As of August 29, four of the eleven courses had already sold out, two others are down to single digits, and one other has filled one section and added a second.

I like the location (including the unparallelled research opportunities in the Family History Library two blocks away), and I like the variety of courses offered -- in 2014 from the US South to Eastern Europe, from hard-core methodology to social history. Check out the faculty, courses, class sessions, and remaining space here.
