WHO: The instructors are all experienced genealogical researchers, lecturers, and writers who bring their expertise into the classroom with case studies and problem solving exercises. The students come from a wide variety of backgrounds but all share their passion for family history and for learning how to efficiently break down “brick wall” genealogical puzzles. (Please see the Faculty tab for biographies of faculty and staff.)
WHAT: Six different week-long genealogical courses which incorporate hands-on learning in a state-of-the-art and friendly community atmosphere. Socializing during meals or in the evenings may let distant cousins discover each other or a new-found research buddy. (Please see the Courses tab for details on each course.)
WHEN: Sunday, July 21, 2013 through Friday, July 26, 2013
WHERE: LaRoche College, 9000 Babcock Blvd., Pittsburgh, PA 15237 (Please see Location tab for directions and photographs of the location.)
WHY: The demand for in-depth genealogical education is so high that week-long courses sell out shortly after registration opens, disappointing many potential students. At the same time genealogists who have taken many courses want new content. Since 2012, the Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh (GRIP) has offered week-long courses of high quality with internationally recognized instructors to address these needs.
