2018 brings a variety of JewishGen classes to meet the research
challenges both for newcomers and those who wish to enhance their
skills. We specialize in interactive, three to four week genealogy
courses, featuring a personal mentoring program tailored to your
research projects. Classes are offered in a private online FORUM open
24/7 to accommodate international students. Students post an ancestral
branch, set goals for their research, and work one on one with the
instructor.

Organize Your Data and Research Online focuses on your immigrant
ancestors in the United States. Six online text lessons begin with
organization and search techniques, and continue with census, vital
records and Ellis Island manifests. (Jan 5th)

The Intermediate Course, Complex Genealogical Research is for students
who, despite basic online research, have not yet found the Hebrew
names, approximate birth year or former European town for the
immigrant; it covers more complex U.S. topics such as naturalization,
death records, military and governmental records, and local archival
research (next class begins April 6th). This class is also taught in
the summer with an emphasis and field trip in New York City

Independent Study. This class offers students a chance to work on any
genealogical project within the expertise of the instructor. The
course may include United States research or the country of immigrant
origin for one branch, one surname studies, or holocaust information
searches. Your topic, your schedule, your questions. Details are on
the Education Page. (Feb 9th)

Courses will open for enrollment 3 weeks before the starting date.
Tuition varies. *Please* read the course descriptions and requirements
on www.jewishgen.org/education and/or contact the instructor.

Finally, our text and exercise based 2 week classes are offered at no
charge to Value Added members of JewishGen. Our first offering in 2018
will be Basic 2 - Search Strategies Using Google, beginning January
29th.
