Genealogists! IGHR has a new Executive Director! You may know this name.

Today’s Press Release is of great interest! Cyndi Ingle has been a long-time friend, both personally and genealogically. IGHR is a long-standing and well-known institute. I attended the excellent virtual course on New York research this past July. The details from the Georgia Genealogical Society:

I am delighted to share with you that Cyndi Ingle has been appointed as the Executive Director of the Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research (IGHR). As an internationally known genealogy educator and innovator, she is well positioned to lead the Georgia Genealogical Society’s IGHR into the future of genealogy education. She will have the full support of GGS leadership as she does so. 

Cyndi Ingle really needs no introduction, but for those of you not familiar with her work over her 40-year genealogy career, please see below. 

IGHR 2023 was a great success, and I thank the volunteers who made it so, particularly the Advisory Council, the Course Coordinators, the faculty and staff, the Steering Committee volunteers, and the members of the IGHR 2023 Executive Committee, Lisa Delgado, Cynthia Harrison, and Karen Molohon, for their dedicated and selfless service. 

We look forward to welcoming you (and your friends) to IGHR 2024, which will be held virtually the week of 21-26 July, 2024. The course list will be announced later in the fall, and registration will begin in the spring. If you have feedback or suggestions for GGS or IGHR, please email me at

Let us all give Cyndi a warm welcome!
