This course is designed for those researchers relatively new to
JewishGen who wish to use all our databases and communication
facilities to explore a family branch.
It’s a mentored course, thus students have an instructor who will
personally respond to questions, make suggestions and assist in
researching the branch you choose…24/7.
The course is designed to match JewishGen resources to your family
knowledge; we will begin with your goals and objectives and a
descendant tree of the branch you select, then gather the information
about your town via JewishGen’s rich databases and web pages; then we
will investigate JewishGen’s other resources: JGFF, FTJP, Country
databases, Holocaust databases, Discussion Lists and Special Interest
Groups. Please note: this course is limited to JewishGen databases and
facilities; after using these, the instructor will give suggestions in
the last week for alternative resources.
We’ll help you build an effective research plan, manage your data with
our fabulous format, and give you tips and techniques to overcome
research obstacles. Your course material includes 7 text based lessons
(about 15 pages each), delivered online (which you can download) with
hundreds of links and suggestions.
*Please* review the detailed description, requirements and tuition at
and then contact the instructor for questions or enroll in the course.
