Format: Paperback
Researched, compiled and organized by experienced and expert military information researcher William Spencer, "Family History In The Wars: How Your Ancestors Served Their Country" is a very specialized guide for genealogists and non-specialist general readers wanting to discover how their family members in previous generations served within any of the branches of the military. In addition to the general Army, Navy, and Air Force archival resources, this highly portable pocket-sized instructional reference also includes women's auxiliary and nursing units, merchant seamen, prisoner-of-war files, civil defense, casualty lists, medals and gallantry awards. A superbly organized compendium of tips and techniques, "Family History In The Wars" is confidently recommended for inclusion into personal, professional, and academic library Genealogical Studies and Military Studies reference collections.
