The next institute for me is the Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh (GRIP). GRIP is held at LaRoche College in northern Pittsburgh. Sunday evening is check-in and classes run from Monday through noon on Friday each of the two weeks that courses are offered. This institute has a dorm, classrooms, and cafeteria just steps away from each other. PLUS free parking if you drive. Driving means bringing more things to be comfortable in the dorm and to do some sightseeing and research before and after the institute week.
Click on that title for details and the class lineup. Debbie Mieszala, CG, and Josh Taylor, MA, MLS will once again be instructors. In May each registrant for my course will receive an email with more information, some packing tips, and details on submitting one of your “research issues” for possible class discussion and research suggestions. Many research problems have been solved via these class discussions.
Between now and the registration dates, think about which courses you are interested in taking and ask your friends which they might be interested in. “Summer camp for genealogists” is always more fun with friends whether you come with people you know or meet new friends during the week! Staying in the dorm is fun and that is where you will find me. Don’t forget it is a dorm and not a five star hotel!
