Are you ready to be your own family archivist? Join me at the Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh (GRIP) June 24-29 for “Family Archiving: Heirlooms in the Digital Age” with instructors Shelley Ballenger Bishop, Pam Stone Eagleson CG, Sierra Green Detre Library Archivist, and Judy G. Russell JD, CG, CGL.
Registration opens Wednesday, 14 February at 11:00 a.m. Eastern for GRIP’s June session to be held at La Roche College campus in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Three institute weeks are scheduled in June and July with different course offerings each week. “Family Archiving” will be offered in the June session. Check the GRIP website for courses, schedule, and registration information.
Since 2012, GRIP has brought together students and instructors for five days of intensive genealogical study on methodology, resources, skills, and problem-solving. The small campus setting offers a collegial atmosphere for genealogy education and is a popular summer experience for program alums. Plan now to reserve your seat by registering on February 14.
“Family Archiving” offers guidance to individual family historians and professionals seeking to understand, preserve, and share legacy family collections. The lecture / workshop format gives students a hands-on opportunity to practice preservation, digitizing, and archival skills throughout the week using original artifacts and material culture. Read a recap of the 2016 course session in “Getting a GRIP on Preserving Family Archives.”
