SLIG 2017: A Photo Recap; Set-Up/Registration/Reception

 Sunday, 22 January 2017, Salt Lake City.

 Today is the big set-up day and final preparation for the institute. The day was long and a lot of work! Committee meetings, registration badges, unloading and moving books (twice!), then a social to top it off. I met several Facebook genealogy friends face to face for the first time, which is always a thrill, and even met my DNA match, LaBrenda Garrett-Nelson, all the way from South Carolina!

Now for the pictures!


Coffee!



Getting registration badges ready with the SLIG Team.

All ready to go!
