How many Ancestors Can you Find?

Sunday, December 14, 2014

The year has certainly flown by...again!  December has not been without its discoveries as I embark on a new chapter after promotion to Archives Technician at NARA:

1.  I am working on Dad's units awards and decorations from WWII before wrapping up a book on the mighty 410th Bomb Group and I think this misclassified as SECRET document might entitle the unit to a seventh campaign star on their ETO medal/Ribbon:

2.  A completely unexpected great group yearbook photo from Brookings SD college showed up on ancestry.com from 1922 also (front row third from left):

Discoveries like these at least a few times a year remind us as family researchers just why our time and effort spent are so very worth it!

Whether you find yourself this December with family in the same room, a phone call away, or halfway around the world and just jotting a few lines of holiday spirit, be sure to include something special for the family to remember in the coming years - we hold the power to make some great family memories every day!
