phylliskramer1 <phylliskramer1@...>

This Basic Genealogy course consists of 8 lessons, provided online twice
weekly. Topics include genealogy formats, trees, organizing and tracking
information, interviewing, Jewish naming conventions, U.S. vital records,
U.S. Census, Ellis Island passenger manifests, and the JewishGen website
and databases. As you can see the emphasis is on U.S. records. The course
includes computer hints and tips on how to best use your computer and browse
the Internet. All classes offer individualized help through an online
Forum where you can post your family information and photographs and get
suggestions and answers to your questions.

The tuition for “Basic Genealogy” is $50, however, if you qualify for
JewishGen’s Value Added Services by virtue of a $100 annual donation,
you are welcome to enroll at no additional charge (to do so, do not
enroll, but instead, send a note with your JewishGen ID to
jewishgen-education@... and you’ll receive instructions
for the waiver).

To enroll and pay online, go to and
select the Basic Jewish Genealogy Course (registration is limited to 60
students and will close when the class is filled). Read the details of
the course, background of the instructor and the requirements, then
enroll by clicking on the “enroll link”. You will be able to pay for
the course online by credit card at our secure server or by check drawn
on a U.S. Bank. If you have any problems or questions,
please send an email to JewishGen-Education@...

Hope you can join us!
