Posted by Phyllis Kramer
JewishGen is proud to announce the Intermediate Genealogy Course will begin September 1, 2009.
This course consists of eight lessons delivered online twice weekly. You can read the lessons online and/or download them at your own pace; they will be in the form of PDF's.
The lessons will cover U.S. topics: 
  • Naturalization
  • Passports
  • Death Records (Probate, Obituaries, Cemeteries)
  • Newspapers
  • City Directories
  • Immigration Ports other than Ellis Island
  • Major Archives and Libraries (including the Mormon microfilms)
  • Military records
  • Internet Research and miscellaneous State and Federal Government Records.
  • Hints and tips on how to best use your computer and the Internet.
We feature an Education FORUM where students are encouraged to post one ancestral branch and get answers to questions and suggestions on avenues to research.
Requirements: 
  • Students must have already researched items covered in the Basic Course (Vital Records, Federal Census, Ellis Island Manifests and JewishGen databases).  
  • Students must be comfortable browsing the Internet. 
  • To best utilize this class, we suggest students have 5-8 hours per week to read the lessons, sample the websites and interact with the FORUM.
