The Institute for Genealogical and Historical Research (IGHR), held annually at Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama, will begin this Sunday, 12 June. While the courses available at this Institute are definitely top-notch, there are other events being held throughout the week. The other events include at least two “meetups” for genealogy groups and lectures Monday through Wednesday evenings after dinner.
Take a look at the following calendar to immerse yourself even deeper into the world of genealogical learning and networking that only a week-long Institute can provide!
