This Friday in honor of this month having both V-E Day and Memorial Day, we will focus on military ancestors. Here are some websites, articles, and blog posts we encourage you to read. If you have a story to tell about one of your military ancestors, please write and share it with your family and consider having it published in a genealogical society’s newsletter, blog, magazine, or quarterly journal. Talk to area museums and historical societies about donating written copies of your work for their archives. Through your stories, their lives will be remembered and honored.
