From Generation to Generation: An Introduction to Jewish Genealogy (Jewish Study Center)
Instructors: Sheila Wexler and Mary-Jane Roth
Rapid advances in technology have brought about a golden age of genealogical research. If you’ve been wanting to join in, here’s your chance! In this four-class course, seasoned genealogists will introduce you to tracing your Jewish family history, providing participants with crucial resources and key tools. Students will learn how to enrich their personal stories through out-of-class assignments and then share their work in class.
You must have basic computer skills and internet access to complete the assignments. A helpful optional resource book, "Getting Started in Jewish Genealogy," will be available for sale ($12 for JGSGW members, $15 for non-members). Class size is limited to 20 students, so register soon!
Sheila Wexler is the president and Mary-Jane Roth is the vice president for programs of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Washington.
Four sessions: JSC, Museum, JWV members $80, others $95 (W-10)
