Research Notes 2020-3-2

Research Notes masthead

This month’s WWI Genealogy Study Group meeting is Tuesday, March 3rd at the Southeast Branch library. Our topic is An Introduction to Internet Archive. While genealogy databases like Ancestry.com, Fold3, FindMyPast and FamilySearch can help find records related to your ancestor, Internet Archive can provide the stories that bring your ancestor to life.

Internet Archive is full of regimental histories. These provide the history of the regiment along with the people who served and the battles they fought. Organizations like the Veterans of Foreign Wars also documented and published the stories from their members. Each of these are full of useful information to help you learn more about your military ancestors.

The study group meetings are open to anyone interested in researching their military ancestors. The group also has a blog at https://wwi-research.tumblr.com.

Tomorrow at the Main Branch library, David Fussell and Kathy Kniery are kicking off classes on Creating Your Family Stories. Part 1 is Finding Family Stories. As of this morning there are seven spots still open. Visit the library website at https://sjcpls.org/ for more information.

Another useful class takes place at the Southeast Branch library on Saturday, March 21st. David McFee will present a session on How to Organize and Digitize Your Family Archive. His class is scheduled for 10:30am to 12:00pm. – giving us time to grab a sandwich and get back to the library in time for our society meeting at 1:00pm. Our speaker is Peter Mullen. He will present the History of the 1918-1920 Spanish Flu Pandemic. Who knew how timely this topic would be . . .

Looks like this month will be full of genealogy goodness!
