  • “Genealogy Research with Military Records” - How can you determine which major conflict your ancestor might have served in? Which records may have been generated during that time, and where are they held? We’ll learn about the various places we might look to determine whether an ancestor served in the military and what we might expect to find in his or her military records.

  • “Seeking a Higher Source: The Records of Faith Communities” - While there are other records that can document a family, the major events of our lives – birth, marriage and death – are often noted through the faiths of our ancestors. Through baptismal, first communion, confirmation, marriage and death records as well as the special ceremonies or roles of our faith traditions (deacon, youth leader, etc.), these resources may be the only ways of finding key dates.
