Finding Military Records for Genealogical Research
Tuesday, February 16 at 1:00 pm
Presented by Mark Mullinax
Military records, especially military pension records, can be an excellent place to find genealogical information. Through them you can often find information such as birthplace, age at enlistment, occupation, and the names of immediate family members. Finding those records can be a challenge for even the most skilled researcher. Join Mark Mullinex, Genealogy and Local History Librarian at the Brighton District Library, as he explains the different types of military records, what information those records contain, where military records can be found, and much more. This program is directed at both beginning and intermediate genealogists.
