The directors of GRIP, Elissa Powell and Debbie Deal, are at the National Genealogical Society (NGS) Conference in Charleston, South Carolina. Many people are buzzing with the news of this new institute and are telling us that they look forward to having another education option for week-long in-depth courses. They say they are quite excited not only by the timing (during summer vacation for those who work on a school schedule) but also by the place (for those who have western Pennsylvania ancestors) or for the proximity to home.
We are excited that they are excited. We are pleased that it meets a need and will be fun too. Look for the turquoise flyers on the freebie table for more information about GRIP.
