Welcome to IGHR
Saturday, 2 June 2018 – Thursday, 7 June 2018
The Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research (IGHR) provides an educational forum for the discovery, critical evaluation, and use of genealogical sources and methodology through a week of intensive study led by nationally prominent genealogical educators. Students choose one course that lasts throughout the week. Topics range from a course for beginners to a variety of courses on specialized topics.
IGHR is hosted by the Georgia Genealogical Society with courses taking place at the University of Georgia Center for Continuing Education & Hotel on the University of Georgia Campus in historic Athens, Georgia. This new venue finally allows courses and accommodations to be under one roof. In addition to the advantages of the Georgia Center, attendees will also benefit from access to the world-class libraries of the University of Georgia including the law library and special collections libraries as well as the nearby Heritage Room at the Athens-Clarke County Library.
IGHR is academically and professionally oriented. The faculty is composed of outstanding nationally known genealogy educators. Begun in 1962, the institute regularly enrolls over 200 students from around the country. Please click on one of the above tabs for more information.
All registration times are EST (Eastern Standard Time).
To register for a course, go to IGHR 2017 –> Courses and select either 1) the Register button or 2) the course. If the Register button is selected from this page when the course opens, the Registration form displays. If the course is selected, the course information page displays. At the time registration opens, a yellow Register button will display. This button will not display until registration opens for that course. Once registration opens, the button will be visible and active. Selecting the Register button opens the Registration form. We will have Waiting Lists for courses that are full.
All we are asking during your initial registration is for your basic information and payment. It will be a quick and easy process. Since you are working from the course page of your choice, you will not have to enter any course information.
All other IGHR registration or information will be obtained from you later.
Payment can be made by credit card through PayPal (a PayPal account is not required).
