I recently received a notice from the Carl Sandburg Institute of Genealogy in Galesburg, IL that they will be a holding a 4-day genealogy institute from May 28, 2015 to June 1, 2015.
Four nationally known genealogy experts will be providing instructions on various aspects of genealogy to those registered in attendance;
The 4 speakers and the program topic each will present are:
- Refining Internet and Digital Skills for Genealogy (coordinator Cyndi Ingle of CyndisList)
- Advanced Methodology and Analysis (coordinator Michael John Neill of Genealogy Tip of the Day)
- The Advancing Genealogist: Research Standards, Tools, and Records (coordinator Debbie Mieszala, CG)
- Germanic Research Sources and Methods (coordinator Teresa McMillin, CG)
Here is a link to a PDF that provides information on the program:
The registration process is expected to start sometime during September 2014 for this lengthy educational program.
I did not see anything at this time that indicated the costs to attend this 4 day program. That will probably be made available when registration opens during this month.
Teresa McMillin, CG, has been a speaker at our own genealogy programs. Her specialty area in genealogy is Germanic research. She is in fact the leader at this program for the Germanic Genealogy track.
Debbie Mieszala, CG, is also local from our area associated with the Lake County Genealogical Society. She too will be one of the track coordinators during this program. I have also seen her make a presentation.
Both of the above researchers are well-skilled and knowledgeable and can certainly provide you with many research insights to make your own genealogical research efforts more successful.
I realize this is quite a way down the road but these Institute programs are limited in size to make the educational experience more productive as well as providing a smaller classroom setting for better interaction.
Use the above link as a starting point to obtain initial information.
More information will be released via the Institute website noted in the above link as it becomes available.
