Today is a day to remember and honor our veterans. Did you know Memorial Day began three years after the Civil War? You can read more about that on About.com’s Memorial Day – Origins and History.
Sort Your Story can help you remember and honor your veterans. Simply create a profile for a veteran in your family, or open one already created. Add a military folder if one has not been added. Drag and drop military records and photos and record the notes and sources attached to each.
Still have records to locate? Add another military folder and make some notes about the records you want to find. Create a research plan. Then when you locate the records and add them to the original military folder, you can delete that note from your research plan.
What stories do you know about your military ancestors? How are you honoring them today? Please share with us in the comments.
