GRIP Announces Use of a New Registration Procedure


Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh (GRIP) is a very popular “summer camp for genealogists” that is held on the campus of La Roche College, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Last year 205 students from 40 states and 3 countries attended seven classes in Pittsburgh. Having fun while learning about genealogy in the company of friends and like-minded classmates is why students return year after year. Not to mention the course coordinators and instructors who are tops in the field! GRIP is happy to provide two separate weeks for learning opportunities this summer, each with its own opening registration date.

Registration for the first week of GRIP is coming quickly on Wednesday, February 4, at Noon Eastern. A countdown timer has been installed on the registration page which will go automatically at the “zero hour” to the registration page. There is no need to watch the clock, hit refresh, or otherwise fear that you will miss the “opening bell.” In fact doing any such action will interfere with the automatic transition and slow your computer down. All you have to do is pick out your course from the list below and read the Registration page completely to prepare your registration answers. Descriptions of the 18 lecture sessions for each course are detailed on the GRIP website. http://www.gripitt.org/?page_id=7
