World War I Military Records
- Presenter: Russell Horton
- Date: Tuesday, November 17, 2015
- Time: 7:00 PM CST
- Webinar Description: We are in the midst of the 100th anniversary of World War I, and the centennial of America’s entry into the Great War is just around the corner. Roughly 4 million Americans—often referred to as Doughboys—served in the military during the war, including 120,000 men and women from Wisconsin. In this session, Horton will walk you through the steps to researching the World War I veteran in your family tree, from draft registration to service records to unit histories. He will discuss records specific to individual veterans as well as broader sources that can be used to provide perspective on the veteran’s experiences. Learn how to properly research and honor your ancestor’s World War I service!
