If you’ve ever wondered about a family member’s military service in the Commonwealth, The Virginia War Memorial is hosting a Military Records Workshop, Saturday, June 16, that can help get the information you need for genealogical research.
The workshop will be held in the Memorial’s Paul and Phyllis Galanti Education Center from 9:30 a.m.-12 noon. It is free to the public but as space is limited, registration is required.
The Military Records Workshop will focus on men and women who served in the Revolutionary War, Civil War and World War II. The program will be presented by Kyndall Drumheller of the Memorial and Brent Morgan of the Genealogical Research Institute of Virginia.
“We will be discussing the use of the Internet and primary documents to show participants how to begin their quest for more information about the military service of their relatives,” Drumheller says. “Participants should bring along any family histories, charts and other pertinent documents that could help in their research.”
