Belarus SIG #Belarus Basic Jewish Genealogy Course beginning July 1, 2009 #belarus


New to genealogy? Not sure how to begin? How to organize? What
JewishGen has to offer? Best websites? Well, consider JewishGen's
Basic Jewish Genealogy course, which consists of 8 text lessons,
delivered online twice weekly, which you can read online or
download at your own pace.

The course will cover using genealogy formats, assembling trees,
organizing and tracking information, interviewing, Jewish naming
conventions, Internet Genealogy Resources, U.S. Vital Records,
U.S. Census and U.S. passenger manifests (Ellis Island) and two
lessons will be devoted to JewishGen's web site and its many
databases. It will also contain hints and tips on how to best use
your computer and the Internet. Best of all we feature an online
FORUM where students can post their ancestral information,
documents and photographs, and get answers and suggestions >from
the instructor and fellow students.

The tuition for Basic Genealogy is $60; however, if you qualify
for the Value Added Services by virtue of a $100 donation to
JewishGen's general fund within the past 12 months, you are
welcome to enroll at no additional charge (to get the waiver don't
enroll just yet, instead send a note, with your JewishGen ID, to
Jewishgen-Education@... and we'll send you the
instructions to register with the waiver).

For more information and to enroll online, go to and read the description. Students
should be comfortable browsing the internet and have 5-8 hours
per week available to read the lessons, sample the websites, and
interact with the FORUM. Registration is limited to 60 and once
the class is full, registration will be closed. For questions
email Jewishgen-Education@....
