JewishGen education

Beginning Jewish Genealogy in the U.S.
This Course is targeted at Beginners, and will focus on your immigrant ancestors and their immediate families in the United States.

Are you ready for a personal mentoring program? We feature 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 your branch.

The course includes 6 lessons (15-20 pages each), delivered online (which you can download) and features techniques for organizing your data, researching and interpreting census, vital records and Ellis Island passenger manifests and lastly, researching on the Internet.

Our classes have no scheduled times as our students are international; enabling everyone to read/view/post at leisure. To see a short video on how our courses work, close this window then click on the video on the education page.

If you have already found the names and birth dates and former towns for all your immigrant ancestors, you are ready to take the Intermediate and Advanced courses.

Requirements: Students must be comfortable browsing the Internet and downloading files. To best utilize this course, we suggest you have 8-10 hours per week to read the lessons, search online and interact with the FORUM.

Tuitionfor this U.S. Genealogy Course is $100 (there is no waiver for this course). Registration opens 2 weeks before class begins
