52 Weeks to Better Genealogy - Challenge #19

52 Weeks to Better Genealogy - Challenge #19

Examine the "Genealogy and Military Records" page on the National Archives site: http://www.archives.gov/veterans/research/genealogy.html

I went to the Site:

Genealogy Research in Military Records, looked to the right and saw"New to Research in Military Records" for link to:
Overview: Historical Documents of Interest to Veterans
Online Veterans and Military Documents
Online Military Documents in ARC

The first five are in my family database, and I can explore these further, individually. The final two likely relate to our most famous cousin, Nile Kinnick, Jr, who died as a Navy fighter pilot early in WWII, and had a school in Japan named for him.

Families are Forever!  ;-)

  2. It is a great site for a suggestion. I had not heard of it.
    I followed suite and put in a person who battled at the Bulge, but heard otherwise too. So I saw the endless names, and well I will go back some nite. Thanks for the idea.
