Thanks and a tip of the hat to Diane Haddad of the Genealogy Insider blog and Family Tree Magazine for this notice: Ancestry.com will allow free search of its military records this week in honor of Veterans’ Day. Details are at this Genealogy Insider page.
A potentially powerful short series on PBS next month explores “What Made America?” through a look at the family trees of a number of Americans.
Thanks to Diane Haddad on her Family Tree Magazine blog for bringing this to our attention.
The program will be on Wednesdays from Feb. 10 to March 3 at 7.p.m. CST.
An excellent video preview is available at http://www.pbs.org/wnet/facesofamerica/.
This is one of the programs PBS is presenting about the heightened interest in genealogy in this country. It might present opportunities for local tie-in activities by our society.
