Jewishgen.org through its Education program offers many online courses https://www.jewishgen.org/education/ that newbies and experienced “geners“ will be able to make use of. Nancy Holden offers “Brickwalls or Dead Ends” that certainly will resonate with all researchers.
JewishGen’s “Brick Walls or Dead End is a three week course focusing on one of your research projects that has come to a standstill. An instructor will help you analyze your data. The course offers downloadable lessons and is a mentoring program where students work one-on-one with the instructor. All research subjects are acceptable but students must have reached a brick wall in their research project.
Requirements: Students must feel comfortable with computers; should have 8-10 hours per week to read the lessons, search online and interact with the instructor. To meet the needs of international students this course is open 24/7.
The Tuition is $150. Registration is open.
Ennrollment is limited..and registration will close when course is full.
In preparation for this class, we suggest you send the instructor an
introduction to your project (names, dates and places) and pinpoint
your brick wall or dead end.
