A British connection is common for many of us with Alabama roots, especially if our ancestors came to Alabama from former British colonies such as Georgia, the Carolinas and Virginia.
Eventually, you’ll want to dig deeper into your British roots, and the International Society for British Genealogy and Family History‘s annual British Institute in Salt Lake City is a great place to do so. Classes are led by leading genealogists and there is plenty of time for research at the Family History Library.
This year’s institute is from Oct. 3-7 at the Radisson (From your blogger: I’ve stayed there, it’s a nice hotel, one block from the city’s light rail and two blocks from the Family History Library).
