Five Things To Do While Stuck at Home

From the JewishGen newsletter:


Most of us will be spending more time at home during the COVID-19 pandemic. We encourage you to use some of that time to advance your family history research by logging in to the resources of JewishGen, such as:

  1. FAMILY FINDER: Make sure you have entered all the surnames and ancestral towns you are researching into Family Finder. This program has been very successful in connecting family members separated by time and distance. https://www.jewishgen.org/jgff/

  2. UNIFIED SEARCH: From one screen, search millions of records in more than 850 collections. Records are continually added and updated. https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/all/

  3. DISCUSSION GROUP: If you haven’t subscribed to the JewishGen Discussion Group, we encourage you to do so. Ask questions and share information with fellow researchers. It’s as easy as sending an email! https://groups.jewishgen.org/g/main

  4. EDUCATION: Learn from home! Sign up for one of JewishGen’s online courses. Those of you who have donated $100 or more in the past 12 months to the JewishGen General Fund are eligible to receive certain free videos and Value-Added Workbooks. https://www.jewishgen.org/Education/

  5. INFO FILES: Have you accessed JewishGen’s InfoFiles lately? This resource contains a wealth of information on topics of relevance to Jewish genealogical research.   https://www.jewishgen.org/InfoFiles/

May all of you stay healthy and have great success with your family history research.
