12 January 2007 ( - Start off the New Year with a project for the generations with online Jewish genealogy classes beginning in February and March.

Providing Jewish genealogy expertise are Internet expert Micha Reisel and genealogy journalist Schelly Talalay Dardashti, who team-teach Basic Jewish Genealogy and Jewish Internet Research.

"It is a great experience," says Reisel, who stresses they thoroughly enjoyed helping students to learn not only the basics, but also how to search for additional information.

Participants have included individuals in the US, UK and Canada, as well as the Canary Islands, France, Australia, Israel and other countries. “In several classes,” says Dardashti, “students discovered research partners of the same geographical areas, as well as relatives!”

Class registration is open now at

Basic Jewish genealogy begins February 1 and gives beginning researchers the essential information to begin making great family discoveries. The class covers Ashkenazi and Sephardi research, as well as languages, calendars, charts, reference books and publications, oral history skills, reading tombstones, geography and names, immigration, major websites, sharing discoveries and more.
