Thanks very much to Horace Waters for leading a great talk about WWI Records at the Andover Center for History and Culture. And thanks to everyone who turned out for our "field trip" downtown.
If you weren't able to make it to the WWI meeting last Thursday, here is a copy of Horace's presentation slides. Also, if you couldn't make it last week I highly recommend you stop by the ACHC (97 Main Street) and spend some time browsing the Andover WWI era artifacts and documents on display. The exhibit is on display until mid-November.
Here are some other WWI resources I know of. I believe Horace may have mentioned one of these but they aren't in his slides:
- Massachusetts State Library Digitized Photographs of WWI soldiers
- WWI Letters from the 36th Infantry Division -- from the National Archives
- FamilySearch Wiki WWI Records
Other genealogy news
- New idea for easy personal archiving...Kodak Digitizing Box
- You Could Be Identified Through a Genealogy Database—Even If Your DNA Hasn’t Been Tested
- November 19th Genealogy DNA Working Group -- MHL Activity Room (across from the Children's Room) 7-8:30 p.m. -- Limited to 12 attendees
Have you completed a DNA test? Would you like to gather with other DNA genealogy enthusiasts to share ideas about how to use the results to break through family tree brick walls? This is the first meeting of what we hope will become an ongoing working group on how to use DNA in family research. Please join us to share your research goals and learn more about this newly forming working group. Register online.
