GRIP-2015 - I'll be there; will you?

I'll be at GRIP in July"learning a little law". GRIP is the Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh. The actual title of the course I'm taking is "Law School for Genealogists" and Judy Russell and Rick Sayre are teaching the course. I'm SOOOO excited to be going again. I had trouble deciding which course to sign up for, but I am in my first choice this year.

There is still room in many of the classes. In fact all of the classes in June, beginning June 28, have at least one vacancy, as of today. And in July, beginning July 19, only two of the six course offerings have wait lists. So there are many opportunities for summer learning.

For those of us living in Arizona, the humidity in Pittsburgh may be a challenge, but the cooler weather is great. Because Arizona does not go on Daylight Savings Time, the fact that it is light at 9 p.m. is a big change also. The campus of LaRoche College is beautiful and many attendees walk in the evenings, if they aren't just socializing, (OR doing some reading for the next day's class.)

If you have time in your schedule this summer, check out GRIP because I'd love to see you there. And if you can't attend this year, these are the courses announced for 2016. What a great variety!!!
