JewishGen course: Complex Jewish Genealogy in the United States #latinamerica

Phyllis Kramer
 

Times change and family genealogists are becoming more genealogically
experienced, more sophisticated at researching major web sites; yet
organization and good research habits are necessary. Your best value
may be one of our personally mentored, one-on-one, JewishGen courses.

April brings our Intermediate Course, Complex Genealogical Research
in the United States.If, despite basic online research (census, vital
records), you have not yet found the Hebrew names, approximate birth
year and/or former European town(s) for your U.S. immigrant ancestors,
consider this course as it covers more complex U.S. topics such as
naturalization, manifests, death records, military and governmental
records (passports, visas, bankruptcy), and local archival research
(course begins April 3).

This 4 week genealogy course features our personal mentoring program
and our online FORUM. Students are encouraged to post an ancestral
branch, set goals for their research, and work one on one with the
instructor. We are proud of our unique, individualized format and
downloadable lessons.

Students should have 8-10 hours per week to read the lessons, search
online and interact with the instructor. Courses are open 24/7 to meet
the needs of international students. *Please* read the course
descriptions, instructor's credentials and requirements on
www.jewishgen.org/education. Course Registration is opens, tuition is
$150.

If, after reviewing the education page, you have some questions,
please email JewishGen-Education@lyris.JewishGen.org.
Thank you

New research tool developed for Chicago-area Jewish genealogy #general

events@...
 

Family history researchers whose Jewish ancestors lived in the Chicago
area will be interested in exploring the new free online searchable JGSI
Jewish Chicago Database (JJCD). The Jewish Genealogical Society of
Illinois has expanded its existing database of Chicago-area cemetery
burial information to include several other useful collections of
information with the total number of records now more than 80,000.

To access the JJCD, go to http://jgsi.org/databasesearch. Family history
researchers can search the entire database or limit their search to a
single component of the full database.

The cemetery information in the JGSI Jewish Chicago Database comprises
entries that often include date of death, date of birth and plot
location numbers within Chicago-area cemeteries.

Among the additions to the newly expanded database are:
---Memorial plaque transcriptions and photos >from two Chicago
synagogues: B'nai Zion-Shaare Tikvah and Lawn Manor Beth Jacob
Congregation. These entries often include date of death and
transcription of the deceased person's Hebrew name.
---Intake reports >from the Drexel Home for the Jewish Aged, which was
founded in 1891, that record dates of birth and death, cemetery of
burial and photos of the handwritten reports, which often include other
useful information such as place of birth, year of immigration and names
of relatives.
---Death notices published in the JUF News >from 1994 to 2005. These
full-text listings include date of death, names of relatives, funeral
home, cemetery and other information.
---An index with date of birth and date of death information extracted
from Chicago Tribune death notices published in the latter half of the
1990s.

JGSI volunteers are continuing to work to add further valuable
Chicagoland research data to the JGSI Jewish Chicago Database. Database
information is still being processed >from two Chicago orphanages: the
Chicago Jewish Orphans Home, which operated >from 1894 to 1942, and the
Marks Nathan Jewish Orphan Home, which operated >from 1906 to 1948.

If you wish to volunteer for this effort or other JGSI projects, please
email volunteers@jgsi.org.

The JJCD project was conceived by Mike Karsen, JGSI past president, with
the ultimate objective of combining all possible Chicago-area Jewish
genealogical data. A compilation of frequently asked questions related
to the JGSI Jewish Chicago Database, created by JGSI webmaster Ron
Miller, can be found at http://jgs.jgsi.org/acjd/faq.html.

Bob Kosovsky
 

This June I'll be a attending a conference in Iowa City, Iowa. Since I'll have
an extra day, I'm wondering if people know of Jewish cemeteries in the area.

Achim.

Are there any others? Thanks!
