Discover what can be learned about military service through unit-level records and other resources.
This is third webinar of an ongoing military research series. You must have attended the first webinar to attend this one or fully understand how to document individual service.
The next step after creating a timeline of military service and understanding through military records, what units your service member was in and where they were, is obtaining contextual documents. Providing context through records, maps, and photographs will bring to life the story of your family member and help you better understand who they were.
This 1.5 hour webinar will focus on obtaining unit-level records and other resources to put your service member's story in context.
In this 1.5 hour-long webinar you will learn everything you need to know to locate and document as much information as possible about your family member's unit level service, both online and offline.
Everything you learn also applies to WWI, Korea, and Vietnam war research.
A replay will be available.
The webinar handout includes resources to help you further your research.
Your handout includes writing prompts to help you start writing the stories.

The video replay will be placed here after the webinar. A day before the webinar, you will receive an email with a Zoom link for the webinar. You have access to the replay for one year.
