Gen-Fed Registration opens Sat, 27 Feb 2016

I wrote before (at http://goo.gl/AcFQpY) about Gen-Fed, previously known as NIGR. The institute, held annually at the National Archives in Washington, D.C., was founded in 1960 as a three-week general course on genealogy. In 1987, it narrowed its focus to federal records. Now the organization will soon accept registrations for this summer’s course:

The Genealogical Institute on Federal Records (Gen-Fed) has announced details on registration, scheduled to open on Saturday, February 27, at 11:00 AM EST. Reservations will be taken online, via 123SignUp, and tuition payment will be due by check within 15 days of making a reservation. Complete instructions are posted at http://www.gen-fed.org/home/registration. Read them over and mark your calendars!

Gen-Fed is for experienced genealogists, and for archivists, historians and librarians interested in using federal records for genealogical research. It is designed to instill a methodological framework and foster creative thinking about relevant records.
