Lithuania SIG #Lithuania New York Genealogy Class will begin June 1 #lithuania

Phyllis Kramer

So many of our immigrant ancestors lived in New York City -- they
started on the Lower East Side and upgraded to the Bronx and Brooklyn;
their children moved to Queens, Westchester, Long Island and New Jersey.

Sure we have the census >from Ancestry and vital records from
ItalianGen but this class will focus on the more esoteric documents
our ancestors generated -- naturalization, probate, landsmanshaften,
voters registration, newspapers, court cases -- and we will note which
documents will only be found on-site at various archives. We include
suggestions on where to research, where to wander and how to get
there. Students will have the opportunity to select a branch to
research and receive suggestions >from the instructor.

This 4 week Intermediate level genealogy course has 7 text lessons you
can download; there are no specific times for the course; students
interact with the instructor though a 24/7 FORUM, in a query and
answer format. To see a short video on how our courses work, go to and view the video at the very bottom of
the page. Note: these are intermediate genealogy topics and if you
wish to pursue another U.S. city, the instructor will be happy to work
with you.

Requirements: Students must feel comfortable browsing the web and
downloading files, have 5-10 hours available each week and should
select a family where census and vital records are already documented.
Tuition is $100 (there are no waivers for this course); registration
is open; go to and click on the enrollment
