The three and four week classes are taught in our unique FORUM, a
personal mentoring experience, where students have the opportunity to
share their story and work one step at a time with the instructor.
Students are encouraged to post one branch, set goals for their
research and work interactively. Instructors are familiar with a wide
range of resources and offer text lessons to accompany the research
Consider the beginning course for organization and basic research
skills (census, vital records, manifests) then move on to the Complex
U.S. course or the New York course (both cover naturalization,
military, governmental records, and local archival research)
Basic Courses are 2 weeks and text based with exercises; tuition is
waived for Value Added members of JewishGen who have donated $100 to
the General Fund in the last 12 months.
We strongly encourage you to look at the course details, instructor's
credentials and student requirements (time, fee, prerequisites) on
www.jewishgen.org/education. Course Registration opens two weeks
before the course start date. If, after reviewing the education page,
you have some questions, please email
and thanks for "listening"
