One June 2, 2012, at 9:00 AM (Mountain Time) the mad dash to register for the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy will begin. We have eleven great courses (see sidebar) to choose from this year.

Register here.

Remember that at a genealogy institute you choose one topic track and you get 25 hours of in-depth instruction on that topic.


Many of our tracks fill quickly so you'll want to register right out of the gate. Early bird registration ends October 31, Tuition rates are as follows, note that there is a $65 additional cost for Problem Sovling:

• UGA Member with Early Bird discount - $350
• Non-UGA Member with Early Bird discount - $400
• UGA Member after October 31, 2012 - $400
• Non-UGA Member after October 31, 2012 - $450

If you are a UGA member, check your log-in information now. The webmaster will not be able to field log-in problems on June 2. If you are not a UGA member, join now! Membership is only $35, so you'll save yourself $15. If you cannot log-in on registration day please register as a non-member and then email us here requesting a new invoice with the correct total.

Evening Sessions, etc.:

We are building a new registration system which will allow you to edit your order at any time. It's not quite ready, so until it is we will only be opening registration for the main tracks. Please note that we will be offering evening sessions, meal plans, parking passes, and more as soon as our new system is ready. You will recieve an update in your email.

Dining Options:

Each year we recieve suggestions from our students regarding dining options. We heard you! Each morning registered students will be entitled to a complimentary continental breakfast at the Radisson hotel. This breakfast will include pastries and fruit, coffee, tea, juice, and water, and will be offered in the main Wasatch hallway on the second floor.

We will also be offering two lunch plans for interested students. See more details here.
