IGHR 2011 Registration, Orientation, and ProGen Study Group meetup

Several hundred genealogists have once again descended upon Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama, for the annual Institute of Genealogical and Historical Research.

Sunday, 12 June 2011, was registration and orientation day. It was also, for many of us, a day to meet up with friends that we only know online, or that we have not seen since last summer. This includes those of us who are either currently members or alumni of the 18-month ProGen Study Groups. I myself am a recent alumnus, completing the ProGen 5 course several months ago.

After the orientation, the ProGen members, alumni, coordinators, and mentors gathered in Beeson Hall, the building just next to the Cafeteria. There were about 46 of us here this year, spread over thirteen ProGen groups!

Class begin tomorrow.
