If you are just starting out or are beginning again, this class is for those who want to move beyond an interest in family history to working with a tutor, mentor and coach to learn the tips, tools and techniques of United States Jewish Genealogy.
JewishGen Education has been overwhelmed with requests for How to Start your genealogical adventure. Many who have begun to collect Names, Dates and Places are dismayed that these facts do not really bring the past alive. They are not the whole story.
Fresh Start will move you though the major steps to finding the story behind the facts available on subscription databases.
Fresh Start will prepare you to move across the ocean to the land of former residence. Without the names of your immigrants’ ancestors and without the name of the place of former residence, it is not possible to search the old country Databases on JewishGen.
Format: We are proud of our unique personal mentoring courses which feature a private 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 using JewishGen. Our classes are open 24/7, have no scheduled times as our students are international, enabling everyone to read/view/post at leisure.
Requirements: Students should feel comfortable with computers and have 8-10 hours per week to read the lessons, research online and interact with the instructor.
Tuition for this Course is $60.
