Researching Your History - Finding Records of Military Service of African Americans
Time & Location
About the Event
While many researchers are familiar with Tuskegee Airmen, Civil War troops and Buffalo Soldiers, African American military service history began with Colonial America. Genealogical researcher Kathleen Brandt will help define the locations of veteran records while also uncovering underutilized holdings of WWI and WWII collections. Plus, your ancestors may have served in the Revolutionary War, War of 1812, the Spanish American War, Philippine Insurrection or other American conflicts. Follow the record trail to uncover your veterans’ military service. Brandt is an international genealogy consultant, speaker and writer and has appeared on "Who Do You Think You Are" on TLC and NBC, and "Finding Your Roots" on PBS and the History channel.
