Registration is now open for the 9-session introductory course in Jewish genealogy, co-sponsored by the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Boston and Hebrew College. The course is being taught for the fourth year by experienced researchers from the JGSGB.
This award-winning course offers a comprehensive introduction to Jewish genealogy and will provide students with the tools to research their Jewish family history.

The course includes basic instruction on methodology, worldwide resources, history and geography. Individual research assistance sessions will be offered to all students and a hands-on introduction to Internet research will be offered to beginners.

A course website will carry lecture materials (audio recordings and PowerPoint presentations) for those who miss classes. Basic computer skills are required.

In August 2009, the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS) presented the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Boston the Outstanding Program Award for 2009 in recognition of this course.

The course is made possible by a generous grant from Harvey Krueger of New York. The Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Boston is dedicated to Jewish family history research and offers educational programs, extensive research materials, and an award-winning journal, Mass-Pocha.
