COGS Program - Researching World War I Ancestors

Logo of COGS

Saturday, November 11, 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. Multipurpose Room A

Notable Genealogist Rosemary Cantrell will present a brief history of the WWI that will help genealogists understand the context of the war and its effect on different countries. Although the fire at the National Archives in St. Louis destroyed most of the WWI personnel records, there are many sources to help in researching the soldier in order to find his story. The presentation will conclude with a case study about one such soldier and his story.
