Researching Veteran Ancestors: American Civil War, World War I, and World War II
September 21 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
As a group, 17th-century New Englanders are arguably the most studied group on the planet, and thus descendants are blessed with a multitude of resources. In many cases, town vital records, church, colony, court, probate, land, military, and tax records not only have survived, but have been abstracted and published. In this workshop, Chief Genealogist David Allen Lambert will discuss the settlement of and migrations within New England, how to locate and utilize original and published records, and strategies for breaking down common brick walls.
