July 2016 National Institute on Genealogical Research

In view of the recent death of Patricia Shawker, CG, director of NIGR, 2007-2015, the board of directors has postponed the 2015 institute until July 2016. 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 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.
