Researching a Veteran?
This Saturday, November 9th, we have the privilege of welcoming Curt Witcher, from the Allen County Public Library in Ft. Wayne, IN. Curt has served as president of both the Federation of Genealogical Societies and the National Genealogical Society and was also the founding president of the Indiana Genealogical Society. His presentation, "From Bayonets to Bombshells," will discuss the sources that are available to document the military service of our family members.
Many of us have tried to document the service of our ancestors from the Revolutionary War through the wars of the 20th Century. As we honor our country's veterans, what could be more appropriate than finding out how to uncover the hidden treasures about our ancestor's service? What surprises might you discover? Mark your calendar and bring a friend to the PLCH Main Library at 2:00 PM.
