Military records topic of genealogy course
“Exploring Military Records From the Civil War to World War I for Family History” is the fifth in a series of genealogy programs to be presented from 10:30 a.m. to noon at the Sherburne History Center on May 28.
The program will explore some of the available resources and records of ancestors who have served in the military during the years 1860 to 1920. Presented by Mike Brubaker, the program will highlight records at the National Archives as well as on-line resources that might be available. Brubaker will also explain how to analyze these records for more information about our ancestors.
In addition to serving as executive director at the Sherburne History Center, Brubaker has been teaching genealogy courses for a number of years. At the Sherburne History Center, the programs began in January and will continue through May.
After a summer break, it is expected the family history programs will resume in September. Topics in the fall will include “Using the World Wide Web to Search for Ancestors” and “Searching Cemeteries for Family History Clues.”
All of the genealogy programs are free to the public. For more information contact the Sherburne History Center at 763-261-4433.
