JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen March 2015 Course: Complex Genealogy in the United States #general


Phyllis Kramer
 

This Intermediate Course will help you organize what you've found and
focus on what's missing. After researching Ancestry and Familysearch,
what are the minor websites and major archives to consider? What are
your brick walls and what advanced research will break them down?

This course proceeds at your pace (there is no time dependence, our
students are worldwide, you participate in our 24/7 forum when you are
available); there are eight pdf lessons for you to download. The
lessons cover U.S. Naturalization, Passports, Death Records (Probate,
Obituaries, Cemeteries), Newspapers, City Directories, Immigration
Ports, Major Archives and Libraries, Military records, Internet
Research and State and Federal Government Records. The emphasis is on
using your computer and the Internet efficiently and employing
advanced on-site or email techniques in U.S. research.

Students are encouraged to post one ancestral branch and the
instructor will work one on one to answer questions and suggest
avenues to research; this mentoring process is unique and quite
valuable. Requirements and tuition are detailed in the course
description; please read it at
