The January launch of my new Hispanic SIG for VGA was moved from January to February. You still have time to register and join us!
Like many cultures, Hispanic countries (we’re including Spain) have traditional naming conventions. Understanding these well will make you much more successful when researching and documenting your ancestors.
Our goal is that this SIG will help you advance your Hispanic research from the comfort and convenience of your home or wherever you have an internet connection. Join us on the 3rd Tuesday of each month (6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. Pacific).
The Ohio Genealogical Society has opened up registration for its 2019 Conference in Mason, Ohio this coming May. I am giving two traditional one-hour lectures, as well as teaching a two-hour workshop that will allow us to go more in-depth with those particular collections.
These three brothers served in Europe during the war. None appeared to be career military before or after the war. So each Flanagan brother should have registered for the draft. Try as I might, I could not find a draft registration card for the oldest brother Michael Flanagan.
I finished reading a book today that I want to recommend to anyone who is researching their U.S. World War I ancestors, including females. Although short (95 pages) the book is jam-packed with information about record collections, repositories, and search strategies.
