So many of our immigrant ancestors lived in New York City...they started on the
Lower East Side and upgraded to the Bronx, Brooklyn and surrounds.
Sure we have the census >from Ancestry and FamilySearch and vital records >from
ItalianGen, but this class will focus on the more esoteric documents our ancestors
generated ...naturalization, probate, landsmanshaften, voters registration,
newspapers, court cases. This will be useful to those who want to find that missing
branch, visit or contact NY Archives. We will have suggestions on where to
research, where to wander and how to get there..and we'll schedule a field trip
to selected archives.
This is an intermediate/advanced level genealogy course with 8 text
lessons you can download; there are no specific times for the course
as students are international. We feature a unique personal mentoring
program where students select a branch to research and work one-on-one
with the instructor. Students should have 8-10 hours per week to read
the lessons, search online and interact with the instructor.
The tuition is $125. Registration is open. Enrollment is limited.
