Registration for the Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research (IGHR) Opens January 17, 2012

Registration for this summer's Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research (IGHR) will open on Tuesday, January 17, 2012.

To prevent an overload of the online registration system, the opening of course registration will be staggered with different courses being opening at different times. Please see the schedule of times below. Once open, registration for each course will remain open until the course is full. All times are Central Standard Time.

PLEASE NOTE: Before a course has opened for registration, it will show up on the registration website as FULL. Don't panic. Once the course opening time has passed, it will no longer appear full (until the course is actually full, of course).

PAYMENT NOTE: In order to be in compliance with federal laws, we will not be able to take any credit card numbers over the phone this year. If you wish to use a credit card to register, you will need to register online.
