Galicia I course begins April 1 #ukraine

Phyllis Kramer
 

Did you have ancestors >from Galicia? Would you like to understand the
resources for researching them? This two part course is designed for
those relatively new to Galician research, but know the town of
origin. We begin with online town sources, continue with surname
research via vital records using four major websites: Routes to Roots,
JRI-Poland, Gesher
Galicia and JewishGen; advanced students may continue by researching
directly in the Polish archives websites.

We will focus on developing a methodology for foreign research,
including: (1) the Family Document containing all the necessary
information about your family branch, (2) the Research Table of where
you've searched, (3) Your ToDo list, (4) contact list of who is researching your
surname or shtetl, and (5) a descriptive paragraph to connect with
fellow researchers and professionals.

Course Material will include an
online, downloadable textbook. Please note: We do not research US or
UK records; you need to
know the immigrants name and town >from prior research.
Galicia II (2020)will cover the historical background, the Polish
Archives, over 50 different source websites
(census, military, directories etc), Holocaust, languages, hiring a
researcher and more!

This is a personal mentoring program (unique to JewishGen education)
which features an online FORUM where you'll be encouraged to post one
ancestral branch (one surname), set goals for your research, and work
one-on-one with the instructor to research vital records for your
branch and ask your
questions. Our classes have no scheduled times as our students are
international, enabling everyone to read/view/post at leisure.

It is imperative that you read the full description at
https://www.jewishgen.org/education/description.asp?course=40144, then
please ask any question. Registration is open to 15 students.

Correction: (Canada) 1926 Prairie Provinces Census Online at Library of Canada and FamilySearch #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

It appears that the link to the LAC is no longer working- which it was at
the time of the posting. Please try this link instead for Library and
Archives Canada: http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/census/1926/Pages/default.aspx
I apologize for any inconvenience.

On February 26 I posted to the JewishGen Discussion Group about Library and
Archives Canada (LAC) and FamilySearch working collaboratively published
the index to the 1926 Canadian census of the Prairie Provinces: Manitoba,
Saskatchewan, and Alberta. While Canada usually conducts a census every ten
years since four years after the Confederation in 1871, due to the rapidly
expanding population of the Prairie provinces a more frequent census was
undertaken in 1906-in between the Canada-wide censuses- and every ten years
thereafter.

While the indexes are up on FamilySearch at:
https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/3005862, they were not
available on LAC until March. The url then included has changed.

Thank you to IAJGS Records Access Alert reader, Harvey Zimberg for letting
me know the original url was no longer functioning.
