Here's the next installment in a great series of tips to help you grow your genealogy skills. These suggestions are brought to us by Amy Coffin at the WeTree Blog, and hoted by GeneaBloggers.
NARA Military Sources
Examine the “Genealogy and Military Records” page on the National Archives page. (Non-U.S. folks: examine the military records information from your country’s national archives.) Click the links and read everything you can. If you’ve ordered a military file before, read this page again and refresh you memory so you can help others. Authors of genealogy blogs can write about records they’ve received, comment on the National Archives page, or ask questions of their readers via their blog.
This challenge runs from Saturday, 8 May 2010 through Friday, 14 May 2010.
Additional Hint: While you are exploring NARA's military records, you might also want to take a look at Footnote.com, and note which military records have been digitized and made available there.
