New Online Education Class

Posted by Phyllis Kramer

Our third course begins on November 1st, with an introduction to JewishGen, Jewish History, Culture and Naming Patterns, Geography and Jewish Communities. It moves into JewishGen Researcher and Country Databases and closes with practical hints on translating original documents, finding researchers, Cemetery and Holocaust research. Our research is limited to what we can find on the Internet.

The course will run 5 weeks and includes 7 downloadable text lessons and a forum on which you can post one of your family branches to research and ask questions.We require that you post to the class forum; no exceptions. You’ll need 8 - 10 hours a week to read the lessons and do the assignments.

Is this the right course for you? Yes, IF you’ve done enough basic genealogical research to know your immigrant ancestor’s Hebrew names, approximate year of birth, originating town. If you are an experienced researcher and have already found your family in European databases, this is not the course for you.

To enroll in the course:
1. Visit www.JewishGen.org/education
2. Review the detailed description of the course
3. Click on the "enroll link" next to the course you are interested in
4. Pay online with our secure system

Please note that that Value Added Services waiver is not available for this course (it is only for the basic genealogy course).

If you have any questions, please send an email to email: JewishGen-education@lyris.jewishgen.org.

We are looking forward to another great course!
