We've opened a few more seats in the Getting Started with Genetic Genealogy course being offered in January at the 2015 Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG). The website is not handling these last minute openings. Contact Valerie Hansen, SLIG Registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested and to determine if seats are still available. SLIG announced this on their Facebook page recently so some of the seats may have been taken. Consider getting on the waiting list as there is always a possibility someone registered may have to cancel thereby opening up a seat.
The Getting Started course will help those with little or no genetic genealogy experience learn the basics. We'll also cover some intermediate level analysis techniques for genetic genealogy. Basics of Y-DNA, mitochondrial DNA, X-DNA, and autosomal DNA will be covered. Hands-on exercises illustrate how to integrate the DNA test results with your genealogical research. The focus is on using DNA for genealogy, covering only as much biology as a genealogist needs to understand. Sessions are taught by me (Debbie Parker Wayne), CeCe Moore, and Blaine Bettinger. See the SLIG website at http://www.infouga.org/cpage.php?pt=42 for more information.
