This will be my third trip to IGHR, and my first as an instructor. I will be teaching four classes this summer:
- “Maryland Resources – Part 1″
- “Maryland Resources – Part 2″
- “State Archives & Other Online Resources of the South”
- “Records of the Slave Claims Commissions”
I hope to provide more updates on IGHR as the summer approaches.
