Research Notes 2019-11-4

Research Notes masthead

November is a busy month for family historians with ancestors who served in the military. Veterans Day is Monday, November 11th. It’s a day when we honor those who served our country. Our November member meeting includes a presentation introducing the Fold 3 platform. You will not find a family tree at Fold 3 but you will find plenty of information about your ancestors who served in the military. Using that information and the memorabilia you have, you can create “Honor Walls” to tell the stories of your military ancestors like the one you see here.


Fold3 is also building a collection of unit histories. These are especially useful for those whose records were lost in the fire at the Military Personnel Center. You will find information on their collection and others at the SAGS Research Desk on The Research Desk is a private group for SAGS members. If you aren’t yet a member, but want to become one, contact Denise Olson at and she will send you an invitation.


If you are looking for other creative ways to share your family history, check out the Storytellers Studio blog on Tumblr. It’s full of ideas and how to put them to use. The post shown above includes a downloadable guide to get you started building your own Flickr Photo Archive. That’s just one project you will find in the Studio. There are plenty more.


FamilySearch is building a new and very interesting research feature called FamilySearch Country Pages.  You will find them on the FamilySearch Blog. These country pages include resources to learn more about where your family comes from with resources to help your reserch and links to record collections at FamilySearch.
