Have a Southern research problem? Let SLIG's Problem Solving Course help!

Have a Southern brick wall in your research? Let Luana and her team of Southern research experts assist you in breaking down your brick wall!

This unique problem solving course is tailored to your individual research needs! Enhance your problem solving skills while working on your ancestral brick walls. Develop methodology, analysis, and research skills while focusing on your own project, using resources from the Family History Library.

Student involvement in problem solving requires commitment and advance preparation. It is divided into two parts:

Pre-Institute: Choose a project focus, ancestor, time period, geographical area, and research questions. Project submission can include timeline, pertinent pedigree and family group sheets, research logs, maps, and a short research summary, detailing what is known information and a discussion of sources used in previous research. Assigned consultants will return an initial analysis of the student's proposed research on Sunday at Institute.

Institute: Under guidance from professional consultants, student's will use a group collaborative approach to discuss research progress each day, utilizing the combined knowledge and experience of the group to solve problems.

Please note that shuttles do not run during the regular part of the day and student may be on their own for transportation to the FHL for research. It is a two-block (Salt Lake City block) walk.
