JewishGen offers New Class: Jewish Genealogy in East Prussia and the
Baltic States August 3 - August 26.

For the first time, JewishGen is offering a research class with focus on
Jewish Genealogical research in East Prussia and the Baltic States.

This course will focus on the modern countries of Lithuania (Kaunas),
Latvia, Estonia and the western part of East Prussia that borders the
Baltic Sea.

This region was once inhabited by the Baltic Prussians and Jews where
German language and culture dominated. Regional wars, famine, trade and
treaties influenced Jews who were permitted to live there. The ports and
the rivers that ran into the Baltic determined Jewish life.

If your ancestral roots were in East Prussia, Northern Poland, Western
Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia this class may help you break stumbling
blocks in your research. We will work at records still in existence for these
areas. Where records are sparse we will concentrate on finding alternate

JewishGen education classes are private, open for your posts 24/7. You
post your family information and the instructor will help you set objectives
to find the solutions for finding missing data.

Tuition for this class is $125. for three weeks of instruction.

If you are interested in this class, we encourage you to send the instructor
a brief summary of your research information and your questions to see if
your research project fits within the scope of this class. More information
