Saturday, Nov. 11, 2023: “Fold3 for Veterans’ Records” with Caron Primas Brennan (Live & Zoom)

November 11, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Saturday, November 11, 2023 at 10 am Central time: Caron Primas Brennan will be here live to explain how to use Fold 3 to search for veterans’ records. She provides an in-depth tour of www.Fold3.com. We review available documents and resources, many military and governmental, digitized from the National Archives, Library of Congress, and other institutions, not previously available on-line. Also included are a tour of the tools available on the site and how to use resources found on the site.

Caron Primas Brennan loves history, biography, puzzles, and a good mystery, which makes her perfectly suited to genealogy research! A 6th grade school project got her interested in researching her own family tree. Her special areas of genealogical interest are Colonial America, Prussian, and Norwegian research along her family lines as well as related DNA projects.

Caron belongs to several local and regional genealogy groups as well as being a member of the Genealogical Speakers Guild and a Professional Member of the Association of Professional Genealogists. She is currently the Registrar for the Anan Harmon Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) and Facilitator for the Chicago Region of the Association of Professional Genealogists. She previously held Board positions at the Illinois State Genealogical Society, the Chicago Genealogical Society and CAGGNI. She has been teaching at the Newberry Library in Chicago and speaking at local libraries and genealogical societies for over ten years with consistently excellent feedback.
