The Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research (IGHR) provides an educational forum for the discovery, critical evaluation, and use of genealogical sources and methodology through a week of intensive study led by nationally renowned genealogical educators. Students choose one course that lasts throughout the week. Course levels range from basic skills for beginners to advanced methodology and evidence analysis designed to solve complex research problems; course topics range from resources for specific geographic locations to in-depth skill development on specific subjects, such as land records and DNA analysis.

In Athens, IGHR attendees will enjoy classes, accommodations, and food all under the same roof at the University of Georgia Center for Continuing Education & Hotel located on the campus of the University of Georgia. In addition to the convenient venue, excellent courses, and opportunities to network with fellow genealogists, IGHR attendees benefit from access to the outstanding libraries of the University of Georgia including the Main Library with its worldwide collection of historical and genealogical material, maps, and government documents; Alexander Campbell King Law Library; and the Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library, one of the Special Collections Libraries in the Richard B.
