Just about everyone has an ancestor (or more) who served in the military, and the
records of their service can be rich with genealogy answers: compiled military service
records (aka CMSRs), pension applications, bounty land warrants, draft registrations,
discharge papers, citations, regimental histories, burial records, veterans questionnaires—the
list goes on.
Our upcoming webinar Online

to find your family’s US military records. You’ll learn:
- what types of military records might exist for your ancestors and where to find them
- how to track down draft registrations (even if your ancestor never served)
how to trace ancestors’ service in the American Revolution, Civil War, World Wars
and other US wars
the best websites for finding military records, including Fold3,

Plus you’ll be able to submit your own military research questions to presenter David
A. Fryxell both when you register and during the live webinar.
