SLIG 2017: A Photo Recap; Day 1

Monday, 23 January 2017

 The institute begins today! It started off with an early 6:00 AM SLIG Committee meeting. Then, it was a quick bite and off to classes. Later that night at the Plenary, CeCe Moore gave an extraordinary glimpse into the PBS show "Finding Your Roots", showing a never before taped segment with LL Cool J and herself. The audience was brought to tears.

My official class title:

Course 4

"Virginia From The Colonial Period To The Civil War: Her Records, Her People, Her Laws"

Barbara Vines Little, CG, FNGS, FVGS

Victor S. Dunn, MS, CG

 My class schedule for this day:

01. Virginia's Vital Records - Dunn
02. Getting the Most Out of Court Records: Order and Minute Books and Loose Papers - Dunn
03. Virginia Geography: Its Effect on Settlement and Migration - Little
04. The Colonial Militia Through the Civil War - Little
