In June 2013, the Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research will have a new course, called “The Five Civilized Tribes: The Records & Where to Find Them.” I ran into the course coordinator Linda Woodward Geiger on my last trip to the Georgia Archives. During our conversation, Linda told me that she had been asked to put together this course, but I didn’t think it would be available so soon.
Lectures in this course will be taught by Linda and six other instructors, including Rachal Mills Lennon, author of Tracing Ancestors Among the Five Civilized Tribes, and Craig Roberts Scott, a well-known expert on military research and the President and CEO of Heritage Books, Inc., just to name the two researchers whose work I am most familiar with. The other lecturers also have impressive backgrounds, but don’t take my word for it. Go look at the course page and see for yourself what wonderful offerings Linda has put together with such a diverse group of lecturers.
And be sure to reserve January 22, 2013 on your calendar. That’s the day registration for IGHR 2013 begins, and you don’t want to miss it, as this course is sure to fill quickly.
