GRIP Announces “GRIP on the Road”!

GRIP announced today that GRIP ON THE ROAD will be held August 3-8, 2014, in Orchard Lake, Michigan, near Detroit, on the campus of the Orchard Lake Schools. GRIP is proud to have been invited to take “GRIP on the Road” and conduct an institute in conjunction with PARI (Polonica Americana Research Institute) located on the beautiful campus of the Polish Mission in Orchard Lake, just north of Detroit. This additional opportunity will make this type of education available to a wider audience. 
Four courses will be offered in Orchard Lake:

Intermediate Genealogy: Tools for Digging Deeper with Paula Stuart-Warren, CG, FMGS, FUGA.

Determining Kinship Reliably with the Genealogical Proof Standard with Thomas W. Jones, Ph.D., CG, CGL, FASG, FUGA, FNGS.

Bridging the 1780-1840 Gap: From New England to the Midwest with D. Joshua Taylor, MA, MLS.

Polish Genealogy with Cecile Wendt Jensen, MA, CG.

Polonica Americana Research Institute (PARI), the Polish Mission’s genealogy center, is part of the Orchard Lake Schools which was founded in 1885 by Polish immigrants as a center to preserve Polish-American culture and history. PARI was founded in 2008 by Cecile Wendt Jensen, MA, CG, with the support of Polish Mission Director Marcin Chumiecki. PARI’s Co-Director is Dr. Hal Learman. For more information on PARI, see

Registration for this new institute opportunity will open Tuesday, February 25, 2014. We hope that this additional opportunity to sign up for popular courses will meet potential students needs.

For more information, please see the website under “Courses.” If you are a Plus subscriber, please see the August 7 interview with Elissa Scalise Powell, CG, CGL, who talks more about the institute and genealogical education in general.
