New JewishGen Course: Breaking Brick Walls in the United States

Posted by Phyllis Kramer

If, despite basic online research, you have not yet found the Hebrew names, birth year or former European residence for some of your U.S. immigrant ancestors consider this course... as it covers more complex U.S. topics such as Naturalization, Military and Governmental records (Passports, Visas), Death Records (obituaries, probate), Mormon microfilms and local archival research.

The lessons can be read online and/or downloaded; read at your own pace (we do not meet at a specific time because our students are international). The class assumes you're comfortable with topics covered in the Basic U.S. Course (genealogy formats, organizing and tracking information, U.S. vital records, U.S. census, Ellis Island manifests),browsing the internet and have 8-10 hours available each week.

All of JewishGen's courses feature our personal mentoring program; students use our online FORUM to post an ancestral branch, set goals for research, and work one on one with the instructor. PLEASE read the course descriptions and requirements and enroll via our Learning Center at:

The course is open for enrollment and will begin Sept. 1.
