Our "Using JewishGen" course begins with an introduction to
Jewish History and Naming Patterns, then moves into
Geography and Jewish Communities. It emphasizes
JewishGen's search capabilities, the JewishGen Discussion
Groups, making contacts with fellow Researchers, understanding
the Country Databases, Special Interest Groups (SIGs) and
We feature an Education FORUM where students can post
one ancestral search SURNAME and communicate with the
instructor to get answers to questions and suggestions on
avenues to research using JewishGen.
Is this course right for you?? If you are new to genealogy and
don't know the basics (surname, shtetl) of the immigrant ancestor
you wish to research, then we suggest you enroll in the Basic
Genealogy or Brick Wall course to find them. If you are an
experienced researcher and are familiar with what JewishGen
offers, note please that this course does not go into researching
Requirements, tuition and enrollment procedures are detailed
on our web page at www.jewishgen.org/education. After reading
the course description, if you have any questions, please email
Looking forward to this class...
