Dear JewishGenners:

A few months ago, I posted here about a week-long Jewish genealogy course that Janette Silverman, Lara Diamond, Marian Smith and I would be teaching between January 9th and 14th, 2022 at the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG): “Back to the Old Country: Genealogy of Ashkenazic Jewish of Galicia and the Russian Empire.” A few weeks ago, after evaluating the current COVID situation, SLIG decided to go virtual.

Now, one can take “Back to the Old Country” from one’s home computer. No additional costs due to airline flights or hotel rooms. The course is geared to advanced beginner and intermediate genealogists who have conducted some research and are familiar with standard research procedures.

Ours is one of 11 virtual courses offered this coming January. To see a description of the Jewish genealogy course and the others, go to There are still some seats available.
