Course Schedule

JewishGen is delighted to offer online interactive courses in Jewish genealogy, to help you organize your information and begin to trace your ancestral roots.

  • Basic courses are now offered as workbooks for purchase. They are text based, self-paced exercises for each topic. Workbooks are available at no charge to Value Added Members of JewishGen.

  • Interactive, mentored courses feature an experienced teacher who will respond in a private forum to your research questions.Each course includes written lessons. Students are encouraged to post one ancestral branch (one surname), set goals for their research, and work with the instructor to research that branch on our interactive FORUM. We are quite proud of our classes and they get rave reviews! See how to enroll and get a peek at the class format.

  • Home study courses include some of our most popular classes that are no longer being taught. They are now available as downloadable lesson guides in PDF format for purchase.

  • All fees are donations to JewishGen. Please read the course descriptions and requirements carefully, as fees will not be returned.

  • It has been our experience that people who sign up for more than one course at a time are unable to fully participate in all of their classes. For that reason, we strongly recommend that you only sign up for one course at a time in order to get the maximum benefit from the class and to allow other students to register for the other, enrollment-limited courses.
