IGHR: No Housing on Samford Campus

As +Cousin Russ and I were finalizing our 2015 calendar, we ran across this odd bit of information from Samford University's Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research (IGHR):
"We regret to announce that due to changes in University policy we will not be able to offer on-campus housing this year. We will be working to establish group rates with our Event Hotels and enhance shuttle service to/from campus. Parking passes will be available for those who are driving to campus during the Institute.

Meal tickets will not be necessary this year. You may simply pay for your meals using cash or credit wherever you purchase them. Stay tuned for updates to meal options.

Your registration this year includes a boxed lunch on Monday and Tuesday of IGHR week. If you choose to eat off campus on those days, just let us know during registration."

A genealogy friend asked "Are they trying to force the end of IGHR?"  Ol' Myrt here imagines it is just a security issue with rising insurance costs.

Happy family tree climbing!

  1. Parking was difficult in 2007. Hope they can figure out some sort of transportation from offsite hotels.
