JRI Poland #Poland Galician Course begins April 1 #poland

Phyllis Kramer

Did you have ancestors >from Galicia? Would you like to understand the
resources for researching them? This two part course is designed for
those relatively new to Galician research, but know the town of
origin. We begin with online town sources, and continue with surname
research via vital records using four major websites: Routes to Roots,
JRI-Poland, Gesher Galicia and JewishGen; advanced students may
continue by researching directly in the Polish archives websites.

We focus on developing a methodology for foreign research,
including: (1) the Family Document containing all the necessary
information about your family branch, (2) the Research Table of where
you've searched, (3) Your To Do list, (4) contact list of who is
researching your surname or shtetl, and (5) a descriptive paragraph
to connect with fellow researchers and professionals. Please note:
this course does not include research in US or UK records; you need
to know the immigrant's name and town >from prior research.

Course Material will include an online, downloadable textbook.
Galicia II (2020) will cover the historical background, the Polish
Archives, over 50 different source websites (census, military,
directories etc), Holocaust, languages, hiring a researcher and more!

This is a personal mentoring program (unique to JewishGen education)
which features an online FORUM where you'll be encouraged to post one
ancestral branch (one surname), set goals for your research, and work
one-on-one with the instructor to research vital records for your
branch, and ask your questions. Our classes have no scheduled times
as our students are international, enabling everyone to read/view/post
at leisure.

It is imperative that you read the full description at
https://www.jewishgen.org/education/description.asp?course=40144, then
please ask any question. Registration is open to 15 students. Just
