New to genealogy? Not sure how to begin? How to organize? What
JewishGen has to offer? Best websites?....well consider JewishGen's
Basic U.S. Jewish Genealogy course, which consists of lessons which
you can read online or download at your own pace.
The lessons cover the practical aspects of genealogical searches:
genealogy formats, assembling family data into family trees, and
organizing information. With a focus on internet research and
concentrating on online sources >from your home computer, we will
cover: U.S. Vital Records, U.S. Census and U.S. passenger manifests
(Ellis Island). Thus it begins with your immigrant ancestors and tracks
their history in the U.S.
We feature an online FORUM where students can post one ancestral
branch (one surname), interact with the instructor, set goals and
research the missing data.
The tuition for Basic Genealogy is $70, however, if you qualify for the
Value Added Services by virtue of a $100 donation to JewishGen's
general fund within the past 12 months, you are welcome to enroll at
no additional charge. Registration will open April 15th; please make
a note as the class fills quickly.
For more information and to enroll online, go to
Students should be comfortable browsing the internet and have 8-10
hours per week available to read the lessons, sample the websites,
and interact with the FORUM. For questions please email
