New Class >from JewishGen Education
JewishGen once again offers its popular publishing class November 3-27.
This personal mentoring class will focus on writing short reports.
There comes a time when you want to write up your research. After you
have worked hard to collect your family data why let it sit in a drawer?
Publishing a book requires an attention to detail, editing, footnotes,
bibliography which often discourages us >from publishing at all. Sometimes
we just want to write it out and share it in a short summary.
Want to share with a relative; or compare with another researcher you find
on JGFF or Ancestry or Geni or Facebook? Need to gather and organize
your data to hire a researcher? Want to self-publish a small coffee table
scrapbook or photobook just for fun?
In this class we will help you organize your data, notes and media files to
create 3 short-standardized reports.
This structured class uses a series of lessons and a forum setting where
you will post your work and interact with the instructor who will make
suggestions as you write your rough draft, edit and finalize each report.
Requirements: You should have enough data collected or knowledge of
your chosen surname to be able to write their family history. You will
choose one family to work on as you build a template that you can use for
other families and persons of interest.
JewishGen classes are taught in a private forum setting that is password
protected. It is open 24/7. The 3 week class starts November 3–27. Tuition
