IGHR (Samford) Mailing List

The Samford Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research--sometimes called Samford, sometimes caller IGHR--has a mailing list.

If you are considering attending this week-long genealogy summer camp, or want to learn more about it, you may want to subscribe to the list. Directions on how to do so are found here.

IGHR is on my calendar for 2010. I'm eyeballing the Southern research course, or maybe the law/gov docs one.

Here's something funny I learned about IGHR while I was at the NGS conference in Raleigh: the most popular session at IGHR is Elizabeth Shown Mills' "Advanced Methodology" class. It's a very difficult class, but the experience is very rewarding. One person described the experience as being broken down like boot camp, and built back up again. When you complete the class, you get a button (or sticker?) that says "I Survived #4" which is the number of the course. Too funny.

  1. I'll be going for the first time this year, and I'm so excited! I created an event listing for IGHR on Facebook. It's an open event, so anyone with a Facebook profile can RSVP whether you're attending this year or not. People have already posted some photos from past years, and I hope to add more once I arrive.
