Warren Blatt, Vice-President and Editor-in-Chief of JewishGen, will give a
beginner's introduction to using JewishGen's most popular databases: the
JewishGen Family Finder (JGFF), JewishGen ShtetlSeeker; the Family Tree of the
Jewish People (FTJP), and JewishGen Discussion Group message archives. This
session will take you step-by-step through the process of using JewishGen's
internet databases: how to search the databases and how to add your own data.

The JGFF contains information on over 300,000 ancestral towns and surnames.
The JewishGen ShtetlSeeker pinpoints the locations of over 500,000 East
European localities.

JewishGen's online FTJP consists of linked family trees containing over two
million individuals.

The Discussion Group message archives contains the full text of over 100,000
messages posted to the JewishGen Discussion Group since 1993.

This lecture is geared towards beginning genealogists. This presentation is
an interactive computer slide presentation, containing instructional slides,
as well as live demonstrations with audience participation.
