An Introduction to U.S. Military Records

More than 35 million people have fought in the military conflicts in America's history. The records created during and after their service are invaluable sources for family historians. Discover the many record types available, where to find them, and study problems that can be solved only through these fascinating documents. Join Susan Goss Johnston on Saturday September 13 as she presents "An Introduction to U.S. Military Records" from 1:00-3:00 at the California Genealogical Society and Library.
