Tracing the life of a deceased military soldier (Soldier Dead) can be challenging. Through three World War I and World War II case studies, learn about records and resources available to help you write the stories of your Soldier Dead.

The doors to the room will open at approximately 7 PM so participants can pick up any handouts, review books and journals and interact with other participants. Tony Kierna, the STDL genealogist, will start the program at 7:30. Introductions of new participants will occur as well as a brief review of handouts and genealogical matters. It is expected that the guest speaker’s presentation will start at around 7:45-8:00 PM. We will end the session by 9:30 PM.
