Are you interested in filling in the stories of your ancestors who are World War II veterans? Have you been trying but you’ve run into roadblocks? Let Wisconsin Veterans Museum Reference Archivist, Russ Horton help.
Privacy laws, federal records destroyed in a fire, and a plethora of acronyms and military jargon can all combine to make researching a World War II veteran challenging. In this Curator Conversation, Russ will share methods and tips you can use to figure out the types of information to seek, ways to understand the information when you get it, and more as you trace the World War II ancestor in your family tree.
