Ready to improve your research skills? The Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research (IGHR) will be held July 25 – 30, 2021! IGHR is hosted by the Georgia Genealogical Society and usually takes place in Athens at the University of Georgia Center for Continuing Education but will be held virtually in 2021 due to COVID-19. Registration opens Saturday, 6 March 2021.

Home Access to Ancestry Library Edition
While Georgia libraries are closed, you can access Ancestry Library Edition outside of the library through GALILEO!

Remote access to HeritageQuest is always available through GALILEO, and patrons of Athens Regional Library System also have access to Fold3 for free from home.
