Monthly Meeting & Program

Family History and Military Service
Presented by Susie Wickman

Register Now! Our program for February will be “Family History and Military Service” presented by Susie Wickman.

When you tell stories about your ancestors that have served in the military, what kind of information do you include? What stories do you tell and how do you tell them? This class will give you some ideas on writing and researching your ancestors or relatives who have served in the military. Find rich details from their service record such as medals and job descriptions. Also research information about uniforms, weaponry, and equipment for a full, colorful story, regardless of the branch of the military or the country they served.

See registration information below.

Speaker’s Bio

I have been passionate about genealogy for a long time. Of us four siblings, I am the one who got the box of pictures after my parents died.  I am fortunate that my mother was a genealogist and spent many hours writing letters and interviewing relatives. I joined her on many of her travels.

Regrettably, however, I did not catch the ‘genealogy bug’ at that time. Afterwards, of course, I had many questions and my parents were gone. But my mother left me with a very solid starting point. Since then, I have really enjoyed studying my family’s history. I am learning so much about myself.
