The Samford Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research (IGHR) will be held this year on June 8 through the 13th. It will be a week of intensive study led by nationally prominent genealogical educators. Students choose one of the offered courses that last throughout the week and that range from a course for beginners to courses on specialized topics.
The institute is academically and professionally oriented and is cosponsored by the Board for Certification of Genealogists. The faculty is composed of outstanding nationally known genealogy educators.
Registration for the 2014 Institute will open at 11:00 a.m. Eastern time (10:00 a.m. Central) on Tuesday, January 21, 2014. I know from past experience that these classes usually are fully booked within minutes after the registration opens.
A link for registration will appear at 11:00 a.m. Eastern time on the Samford Institute's web site at http://www4.samford.edu/schools/ighr. I would suggest you go to that site now to see what will be available and to decide which course you wish to take, then set your alarm clock!
