UNCLE SAM WANTS YOU! - 20th Century Military Research

This lecture discusses what records of genealogical value exist documenting the primary military conflicts of the 20th century, specifically WWI, WWII, Korea and Vietnam. Learn who would appear in these records and what they reveal. We will also talk about non-official sources of information that may provide clues to persons who served or were related to service personnel during those conflicts.

Getting the Most from Early US Military Records

During the wars involving the U.S. in the 18th and 19th centuries, your ancestor may have served in the Regular Forces, the Volunteer Troops or in a State Militia that had been federalized. This lecture will touch on how the military force, Congressional legislation, and other factors may have affected your ancestors’ eligibility for military benefits, and therefore, the records that may have been produced on your ancestor. We’ll examine the key U.S. federal military records that provide especially valuable genealogical information and look for clues in the records that may help to expand your research. This presentation will cover the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, and the Civil War.

Overlooked Research Sources: A Gold Mind to be Discovered

We sometimes get caught in a researcher’s “rut”; we start looking at the same type of sources and “forget” that there are a lot of different types of sources to be scoured for information and clues to our ancestors. This presentation will take a look at a variety of these sources, what they contain and where they can be acquired. Some sources discussed are County Historical & Biographical Publications; City Directories; Agriculture and Industrial Census Schedules; School Records; WPA Historical Records Survey (HRS) (Published and Unpublished); Periodicals and PERSI (PERiodical Source Index); Prison Records; and more.
