Look up Your Veterans!
Friday, May 23, 2008
www.ancestry.com is offering free access to military records until the end of the month of May (2008)! It's a way to get you to come to the site - and there are charges for full services (& a 14-day free trial). But I spent a pleasant afternoon wandering around the military records - And found a card for my grandfather the steelworker (with his signature & old address) - but not for my father the Lt. in the Transportation Corps - or a second cousin who won a purple heart! But it was fun looking.
And I started to fill in what I know of my family tree. That doesn't cost anything - and you can invite other members of your family to contribute, too. I am trying to encourage my brother, the family historian to add his information! And as it's all online, it's easily shared...And you can even add pictures and stories.
Happy Memorial Day!
