Finding the Answers: WORLD WAR II ONLINE

Presented by

Jennifer Holick

One place many people begin research for their World War II service member is online. While most of the records you need to reconstruct service history are not available online, you can find clues and unit or contextual information to add to your soldier’s story. Many people also connect with living family members of soldiers buried in ABMC cemeteries through online resources.
In this program, Jennifer will:

  • Explain some myths and common questions about online research.
  • Explain how to research using the collections on Ancestry.com and Fold3.com.
  • Discuss other places you can find information online and how that can lead to offline resources.
  • Explain where and how to connect with other researchers or European grave adopters.
  • Discuss using social media to locate information.

Refer to the event list to the right for times and locations.
                                

We are pleased to partner with both the Glenview and Northbrook libraries. Volunteers are available to help you solve a problem or get started with your genealogy research. Volunteers are available weekly in Glenview and monthly in Northbrook. Contact the libraries for specific hours.

Of course you are welcome to attend one of our monthly meetings and meet others willing to share their expertise.
