The Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research (IGHR) announced in May that the Institute would relocate to a new location. (See my May 28, 2015, article about the relocation at http://goo.gl/rvjhJU.) At that time, the new location had not been defined. Now the Samford University Library and the Advisory Board of the Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research (IGHR) have announced a new host site for IGHR.
IGHR will be moving to Georgia in 2017. After evaluating a number of proposals for the new host site, the Georgia Genealogical Society, Inc. has been selected to be the organization to carry forward the tradition of excellence in genealogical education. The Institute will move to Athens, Ga. and the Georgia Center for Continuing Education in July of 2017.
