Student Reviews!

  • Basic 1: Exploring JewishGen: I like the workbook format … it is a good match with my experiential learning style. It is well organized. The step-by-step exercises are an opportunity apply the process to my own research. Many thanks, Nancy. This has been a valuable learning experience, as always. (Evelyn)

  • Organize Your Data and Research Online: I thought the lessons were straight-forward and clear and you were there when I got stuck, You are teaching us how to use tools to find data that is often incomplete. (Marilyn)

  • Complex Research in the U.S.: Thank you Phyllis for all of your assistance and guidance…I have also learned a lot of new sources and methods for organization and documentation. (Barbara)

  • New York Genealogy: I thought the course was outstanding! This is my first online course and I like the format and the ability to interact with the instructor. Also, the text material is excellent and will be an extremely helpful resource for future research. (Louise)

  • Brick Walls: This class taught me the first steps in organizing my research. Nancy definitely provided resources that enlarged my range of research. It was absolutely a worthwhile experience. (Alyson)

  • Research your Roots Using JewishGen: I can't tell you how much I appreciate your guidance in helping me get the information into this format. It's hard at first but I really like how it forces me to be more diligent, precise and makes me document and organize. (Tracy)

  • Home Study Beginners: This has been most helpful in the organizing my research. (Marjorie)

  • Belarus Research: After running into some beginner's luck (or lack of), what this class left me was tools to research in a more effective way. In doing one of the assignments, I ran into a huge database, previously unknown to me, with which I was able to help over 50 families discover their roots. It was all right there, I just didn't know how to search. Thanks to Nancy we have 50 or so new genealogy enthusiasts. I can't wait to get started on the next course! (Lia)
