A week of genealogy in a beautiful green campus setting. Interaction with other genealogists, classmates, and instructors. You never know who you will end up sitting next to in the classroom or in the cafeteria. I have seen friendships develop and even some ancestral matches made.
The Genealogical Institute of Pittsburgh is all that and more. It takes place in Pittsburgh but covers all kinds of research, methodology, localities, questions, conundrums, and gets us all invigorated. Even the instructors leave GRIP with a renewed energy.
GRIP has become so popular that in 2015 it takes place in two different weeks with an excellent array of courses. Not all the courses are the same each week, but the website lists those for each week. A few seats are still open in some courses.
The dates? June 28-July 3 or July 19-24.
A vital date: May 15 is the last day to register and save $25 on the full cost. www.gripitt.org
If you are already registered for my second week course, Intermediate Genealogy: Tools for Digging Deeper , watch your email in a couple weeks for a special way to participate and the chance to have one of your genealogical conundrums evaluated and perhaps solved! I will even share some packing tips for those coming from out of town. Not registered for this one? A few seats are left but hurry so you receive the special email.
