We had an amazing week filled with fun and learning during IGHR 2019! Thank you for your patience as we prepare the website for IGHR 2020.
Attendees from 32 states and the island of St. Kitts attended one of our thirteen courses during IGHR 2019. We look forward to welcoming them back to Athens and meeting new friends during IGHR 2020.

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 venue allows courses and most 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.
