With so many military conflicts throughout America’s history, it’s likely your ancestors were involved. Finding records of their service will help you round out the portraits of their lives and honor their memory. Military files also can reveal information about widows and children—and even ancestors who didn’t serve might have left behind draft records. Online Editor Tyler Moss shares tips from the upcoming Family Tree University course “US Military Records: Trace Your Ancestors’ Service” which runs 7/7/2014 – 8/1/2014.
