Join the JewishGen Basic Genealogy Course

Posted By Phyllis Kramer
New to genealogy? Not sure how to begin? How to organize? What JewishGen has to offer? Best websites? Well, consider JewishGen's Basic Jewish Genealogy course, which consists of 8 text lessons, delivered online twice weekly, which you can read online or download at your own pace.
The course will cover using genealogy formats, assembling trees, organizing and tracking information, interviewing, Jewish naming conventions, Internet genealogy Resources, U.S. Vital Records, U.S. Census and U.S. passenger manifests (Ellis Island) and two lessons will be devoted to JewishGen's web site and its many databases. 
It will also contain hints and tips on how to best use your computer and the Internet.  Best of all we feature an online FORUM where students can post their ancestral information, documents and photographs, and get answers and suggestions from the instructor and fellow students.
The tuition for Basic Genealogy is $60; however, if you qualify for the Value Added Services by virtue of a $100 donation to JewishGen's general fund within the past 12 months, you are welcome to enroll at no additional charge (to get the waiver don't enroll just yet, instead send a note, with your JewishGen ID, by clicking here, we'll send you the instructions to register with the waiver).
For more information and to enroll online, go to http://www.jewishgen.org/education and read the description. Students should be comfortable browsing the internet and have 5-8 hours per week available to read the lessons, sample the websites, and interact with the FORUM. Registration is limited to 60 and once the class is full, registration will be closed. For questions, please email us by clicking here.
Hope you can join us
