JewishGen's NY Genealogy Course starts June 14 #usa

Nancy Siegel
 

So many of our immigrant ancestors lived in New York City -- they
started on the Lower East Side and upgraded to the Bronx and Brooklyn;
their children moved to Queens, Westchester, Long Island and New
Jersey.

We have census reports >from Ancestry and vital records from
ItalianGen, but this class will focus on the more esoteric documents
our ancestors generated, including probate, landsmanshaften, voter
registration, newspapers, and court case records.

This is an intermediate level genealogy course with eight text lessons
you can download; there are no specific times for the course as
students are international. Students will select a branch to research
and receive daily advice and suggestions >from the instructor through a
24/7 Forum, in a query and answer format. Students must feel
comfortable browsing the web and downloading files, have 8-10 hours
available each week, and should select one NYC family where census and
vital records are already documented.

Tuition is $150; registration is open at:
https://www.jewishgen.org/education/description.asp?course=40135

For questions, please email the instructor: Phyllis Kramer,
JewishGen's VP of Education, born and bred in NYC; she will lead you
through it.

Wolkowce #galicia

Zev Cohen
 

My father was born in the village of Wolkowce, near the town of
Borszczow in the Tarnopol region, in May 1914. In Yiddish it was called
Wolkowitz and at the time it was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
After WWI it reverted to Poland and after WWII 'landed' in the
Ukraine.

I have found no records pertaining to the village and to the few Jewish
families who lived there.

I would appreciate any information relating to the village. Does anyone
know where birth certificates and/or other official documentation for
this location might be found?
