If you have never attended IGHR before, please visit the “IGHR 101” page.  This site contains a short guide detailing the online registration process.

This will be my third trip to IGHR, and my first as an instructor. I will be teaching four classes this summer:

Course 3, “Research in the South, Part I” (coordinated by J. Mark Lowe, CG):

  • “Maryland Resources – Part 1″
  • “Maryland Resources – Part 2″
  • “State Archives & Other Online Resources of the South”

Course 8, “Researching African-American Ancestors: Slave & Reconstruction Era Records” (coordinated by Frazine Taylor):

  • “Records of the Slave Claims Commissions”

I hope to provide more updates on IGHR as the summer approaches.

    Can’t wait! I really want to take Course 4, but if (and I know it always does) it fills up before I can get registered, there are several other courses that are on my “want to take” list. Especially Course 3. And interestingly it’s my third trip to IGHR also, see you in Sanford.

  2. Congratulations on becoming a teacher at IGHR. What an honor! I would like to go there someday. I could research my ancestors at the Linn Henley Research Library and go to school at the same time!
