“Boots on the Ground: Using Archives to Trace Your Veteran Ancestor” by Tina Beaird (via Zoom)

November 14 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Tina Beaird will explain the significance behind using original records for tracing your ancestor’s military service. Records from the American Revolution to WWII will be discussed as well as sources for modern records. Learn what types of documents are available within federal, state, and local archives.

Beaird is the owner of Tamarack Genealogy and is the Genealogy/Local History Librarian at the Plainfield Public Library. She lectures nationally on military research, genealogical methodology, Scottish records, and archival preservation. She is a governing board director of the Illinois State Genealogical Society, the Northern Illinois Historical League, and the Illinois State Historical Records Advisory Board. She volunteers with several local historical and genealogical societies, scanning and indexing historic records. Occasionally, Tina finds time to research her own family tree, which she has been pursuing for more than 25 years.
