DearFRIENDS,
January is a time for new beginnings, and so we shall TACKLE head-on the challenge of “getting organized” during two of this week’s three webinars. Then Ol’ Myrt here is going to school – Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy to be specific. These are the two high-powered courses I’ll be taking.  (Aaaack!!!)

  • Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG) – Course 1 “The Family History Law Library” with course coordinators Judy G. Russell, JD, CG, CGL and Richard G. Sayre, CG, CGL, FUGA, assisted by instructors Claire Bettag, CG, F. Warren Bittner, CG, David E. Rencher, AG, CG, FIGRS, FUGA and Marian L. Smith (USCIS).
  • SLIG Academy – Course 4 “DNA & the 21st Century Professional” with course coordinator Angie Bush, MS, assisted by instructors Blaine Bettinger, PhD, JD and Paul K. Graham, AG, CG, CGL.

This means you’ll have two full weeks to work on the “getting organized” commitments you make during Mondays with Myrt on 7 Jan 2019 and WACKY Wednesday on 9 Jan 2019.


Here’s the lineup of DearMYRTLE family history webinars for January 2019:
