JewishGen education

Beginning Jewish Genealogy in the U.S.
This Course is for you if you have just started your family history research.The focus is your immigrant ancestors and their immediate families in the United States.It is not a class for those who have done extensive searching on internet databases. It is not a dead end or road block course. 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. There are many classes for advanced beginners and those who have collected lots of records.

We feature an online FORUM where you are guided by the instructor in a one on one discussion of your work as you research your family roots.

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.

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
