IGHR Course on the South Begins

Beginning of Course 3 IGHR 2012

Course 3 at Samford IGHR began this morning as coordinator J. Mark Lowe set the tone for will most likely be an informative week. With the focus on the American South being examined, participants are likely to have a thorough introduction to early history, laws and policies that affected our ancestors who lived in the South.

Introductions were made of participants as well as faculty, and the class began. Today provided a close look at both North and South Carolina, from wills, maps and other records reflecting the unique history of these states.

Tomorrow will consist of an overview into Maryland and much more.  The class is data rich and record rich and hopefully will continue to be as full of information as the first day.
