UGA: Early-Bird deadline for SLIG registration

For Immediate Release
Wednesday, September 29, 2011

Summer is ending, and with the advent of fall we are drawing that much closer to the early-bird deadline for registration to the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG). It’s only a month away! If you register for SLIG after October 30, 2011 you will pay an increase of $50 ($400 for UGA members and $450 for non-members). The current registration cost is only $350 for UGA members and $400 for non-members. To register visit www.slig.ugagenealogy.org.

Often genealogists are self-taught and gain most of our knowledge from books like Professional Genealogy and The Researcher’s Guide to American Genealogy. But there are always gaps in any self-taught knowledge base. The Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy is designed to help fill in those gaps. Whether you are taking Paula Stuart-Warren’s American Records course to cement your basic and intermediate knowledge, or one of our more specialized courses—Advanced Land Records or Original Source Repositories for example—to take your research to the next level.

Sometimes our research  takes us to new countries and may even introduce us to records in new languages. At these times a knowledgeable guide can shave years off your learning curve. This year we are immersing students in four highly specialized areas: Welsh Research, Swedish Research, Midwestern Research, and Genealogical Librarianship. You may not think those last two require specialized knowledge, but have you ever tried to research in the Ohio Military Districts? Kory Meyerink sure has and he can guide you past the land mines. Drew Smith will help genealogical librarians learn how to best aid their patrons in their research adventures.

We are also offering a first-rate technology course with expert George G. Morgan. More and more we are seeing the genealogical arean transformed by technology--blogs, relational database software, online record collections, etc.--and it can be difficult to keep up. George G. Morgan will guide students past the pitfalls to a successful tech.

It’s especially important to register now if you want to take the Problem Solving course. The project submission is also due by October 30, 2011 and no registrations will be taken after that point (unless special permission is granted from the coordinator).

The Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy will be held January 23, 2012–January 27, 2012 with a welcome social the evening of January 22, 2012. The Plenary Session will be presented Monday, January 23, 2012, at 7:00 PM by Thomas W. Jones. The topic is "The Genealogical Proof Standard: What It Is and What It Is Not" and is free to the public. A banquet will be held to honor graduates on Friday, January 27, 2012 at 7:00 PM. Awards will be presented at the banquet, including the prestigious Fellow of the Utah Genealogical Association (FUGA); Lou Szoucs will present the banquet program, subject TBD.

We will again be offering evening sessions. These sessions are open to both registrants and the public for $10/each. For a full schedule visit our website. Due to their smashing success in 2011 we will again offer vendor lunches Monday through Thursday. A standard lunch hour will facilitate these lunches and ensure students are able to attend without disrupting their regular class schedule. The vendor lunch schedule is available online and tickets can be purchased through the SLIG registration process.

We highly recommend staying at the conference hotel, the downtown Salt Lake City Radisson. The rate is $85/night for single or double occupancy; The UGA rate is available from January 19, 2012–January 30, 2012. RootsTech begins February 2, 2012 and also has a dedicated rate at the Radisson as well. If you are staying through both conferences please send an email to christy.fillerup@gmail.com with the subject line SLIG/RootsTech Hotel and the dates you are staying to ensure your hotel reservations are processed correctly. Book your SLIG reservation at http://www.radisson.com/uga.

Geni Creates First Comprehensive Genealogy Service With Record Providers Archives.com and GenealogyBank.com

Partnership Combines Largest, Most Accurate Online Tree With Billions of Records

WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA – September 29, 2011 – Geni, the collaborative family history community home to the largest, most accurate “World Family Tree,” today made documents from both the Archives.com and GenealogyBank.com records databases available quickly and easily to Geni members through profile-based alerts.

Traditionally, genealogists have been forced to manually re-enter vital information, such as names, dates and locations, on every site they visit for every person in their family tree. Geni now automates this process by automatically searching record partners’ collections any time one views a relative’s profile on Geni. When matches are found, an alert will appear with links to records from each provider. If a member wants to view any of these records, they can view the profile’s results in each database with one click, saving them valuable research time.

“We recognize the importance of source records when building a family tree. Documenting sources is even more important in a collaborative environment like Geni,” said Noah Tutak, Geni CEO. “By providing records from the person’s profile, first with partners Archives.com and GenealogyBank.com, and with many others to come, we can save genealogists from spending their time conducting separate searches on the many genealogy databases available.”

Archives has compiled more than 1.5 billion historical records, including vital (birth, death, marriage, divorce), census, newspaper, obituary, military, and immigration. Recently, the entire U.S. census became searchable on Archives.com, including more than 500 million records, and three million images. Archives also offers a seven-day free trial, so users can try the membership risk free.

“It’s almost overwhelming the number of public records that are available. The tough part is finding the ones that are relevant to your family,” said Joe Godfrey, director of product at Archives. “Highlighting applicable documents to Geni members directly on their profile pages is a great way to save what most of us don’t have enough of... time.”

GenealogyBank is home to more than 5,700 fully searchable U.S. newspapers from 1690 to the present and over one billion genealogy records, including obituaries, birth and marriage notices, passenger lists, military records and much more.  Over 95 percent of the newspapers on GenealogyBank cannot be found on other genealogy websites.  GenealogyBank adds millions of records every month and offers a 30-day trial, making it easy for users to find first-hand accounts about their ancestors.

“We’re excited to help Geni members discover the stories, names, dates, places and events that have played a role in their family history,” says Ross Allred, director of GenealogyBank. For decades, family historians had to travel across the country to hundreds of libraries to access these newspapers—now they are instantly available to Geni members 24/7 with a click of a mouse.”

US: Online Access to Founding Fathers Papers


Washington, DC… The National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), the grant making arm of the National Archives, has signed a cooperative agreement with the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities, affiliated with the University of Virginia, to provide pre-publication access to 68,000 historical papers of John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and George Washington that have not yet been published in authoritative documentary editions.  The cooperative agreement provides up to $2.5 million for the project.

The Virginia Foundation for the Humanities and its Documents Compass program are carrying out this three-year project.  Documents Compass, a program specializing in documentary editing in the electronic age, will update and improve existing transcriptions of the papers of the Founders of the Nation and make them available online through a new website.  This work builds on its successful 2009 pilot project, funded through an NHPRC grant, which put online 5,000 unpublished documents from the Papers of James Madison and the Papers of John Adams.

This project expedites availability of the unpublished papers, giving scholars and the general public access to these primary source materials before they appear in the official print editions produced by six separate documentary editing projects.  As new authoritative volumes are published in future, the final transcriptions with explanatory notes will replace the pre-publication transcriptions. “This is a remarkable opportunity to make available to the public these very important historical documents in a timely and easily accessible manner,” says Rob Vaughan, president of the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities.

Providing access to the unpublished transcriptions is the second stage of the Founders Online Initiative undertaken by NHPRC in 2010.  The first stage, currently underway, is being carried out by the University of Virginia Press to provide free online access to over 120,000 historical documents included in the published documentary editions for these key figures of the U.S. founding era.  Users will be able to access both the published, annotated documents and the unpublished transcriptions through the Founders Online website.

David S. Ferriero, Archivist of the United States, notes, “These documentary editions provide a treasure trove of information about the founding of our nation. The historical documents contain fascinating details about the thoughts, deeds, and lives of these seminal figures. This agreement ensures that we leverage the latest technology and processes to ensure that all Americans can access and use these papers.”

National Archives Welcomes Millionth Visitor FY 2011

Brooklyn Robbins with Archivist David S. Ferriero
Washington, D.C….  The National Archives welcomed its millionth visitor for Fiscal Year 2011 on Wednesday, September 21, 2011.  

Second grader Brooklyn Robbins, from Cordova, Tennessee, was warmly greeted by Archivist David S. Ferriero.  Expressing surprise as the person reaching this milestone, Brooklyn beamed with pride and said this was a visit she would always remember. This was Brooklyn’s first visit to the National Archives.

Large numbers of visitors come to the National Archives each year to see the Rotunda for the Charters of Freedom, the Public Vaults exhibition, programs and films in the William G. McGowan Theater, and changing exhibits in the Lawrence F. O’Brien Gallery. 

The National Archives Experience is made possible by a public/private partnership between the National Archives and Records Administration and the Foundation for the National Archives, which is the private sector partner that supports the creation of new exhibitions and educational programs and resources:

Rotunda for the Charters of Freedom
“The Charters of Freedom: Our Nation’s Founding Documents” exhibit takes a fresh look at the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights and uses facsimiles of historical documents from the holdings of the National Archives to answer two key questions about each Charter -- “How did it happen?” and “Why is it important?”  The new exhibit is an attempt to answer questions visitors often ask when see the Charters.

Surrounding the Rotunda for the Charters of Freedom’s centerpiece cases holding the Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights, highlights of the new exhibition include “Secrets of the Documents” and special quotes from the Founding Fathers.

Public Vaults Exhibition
The Public Vaults exhibition brings visitors beyond the Rotunda and creates the feeling of entering the stacks and vaults of the National Archives.  Containing over 1,100 records and 22 state-of-the-art interactive stations, the exhibition shows the raw materials from which history is made, while also relaying compelling personal stories of both our nation’s leaders and “ordinary” Americans.

William G. McGowan Theater
The elegant William G. McGowan Theater is a centerpiece of the National Archives Experience.  By day the McGowan Theater continuously shows the 11-minute introductory film “Democracy Starts Here.”  By night, this theater has become one of the nation’s leading centers for documentary film and a forum for programs that explore American history, democracy and government.  

Lawrence F. O’Brien Gallery 
The Lawrence F. O’Brien Gallery is a 3,000 square-foot gallery for special and traveling exhibitions at the National Archives.  Exhibitions in the Lawrence F. O’Brien Gallery explore newsworthy and timely themes, issues, events, and turning points in our nation’s history.  The current exhibition, What’s Cooking, Uncle Sam?, explores the Government’s effect on the American diet.  Visitors can unearth the stories and personalities behind the increasingly complex programs and legislation that affect what Americans eat.  There are over 100 original records in the exhibit—including folk songs, war posters, educational films, and even seed packets.  The exhibition, which is free and open to the public, runs through January 3, 2012, in the Lawrence F. O’Brien Gallery of the National Archives Building.  For information on “What’s Cooking, Uncle Sam?” see http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/whats-cooking. What's Cooking, Uncle Sam? is made possible in part by the Foundation for the National Archives with support from Mars Incorporated and Mars Food.

The Archives Shop
Visitors have one last important stop to make before they leave – a special shop where they can purchase some treasures of their own.  Archives Shop sales have far exceeded initial projections.  By far, the most popular items are reproductions of the Charters of Freedom. 

Information and Hours:
The National Archives Experience is free and open to the public.  The National Archives building is located between 7th and 9th Streets, NW on Constitution Avenue.  Metro stop:  Archives/Navy Memorial.  For information on individual and group tours see: http://www.archives.gov/national-archives-experience/visit/visit_groups.html

Exhibit hours are 10 am to 5:30 pm through March 14 (closed Thanksgiving and December 25).  For up-to-date information on events and programs, visit www.archives.gov
