13-17 July 2015
The National Institute on Genealogical Research (N.I.G.R.), at the National Archives in Washington D.C. and College Park, Maryland, is an intensive program offering on-site examination of federal records. Designed for experienced researchers, it is not an introduction to genealogy.

The 2015 program focuses on commonly used records such as immigration, military, land, African American, and naturalization. Complementing those core lectures will be presentations on lesser-known federal records useful to family historians. The group spends one day at Archives II in College Park, Maryland, and there are optional evening sessions at the Library of Congress and the DAR library.

Enrollment is limited. Application brochures will be mailed early February 2015. The class fills very quickly. Tuition is $400 for applications postmarked on, or before, 15 May 2015, or $450 thereafter. Scholarships are available.
