With the ever expanding digital resources available today we can find
evidence of kinship in military records often neglected. Records such as
pensions, service records, medical records, and even pension payment
records are increasingly available. However, our need to ensure that we
conduct “reasonably exhaustive research” required by the Genealogical Proof
Standard (GPS) will often times require research in original textual
records. This webinar, presented by Rick Sayre, CG, CGL, FUGA and hosted by
the Board for Certification of Genealogists
<http://www.bcgcertification.org/> will focus on finding kinship
information in both online and textual military records.
