In honor of Memorial Day, MyHeritage.com is offering free access to all military records from May 20–26, 2020.
The MyHeritage collection consists of 57 million records and includes draft, enlistment, and service records, pension records, and other military documents from North America and around the world, dating back to the American Revolutionary War in the late 18th century.
In addition, on Sunday, May 24 at 1 p.m., there will be a presentation, “Breaking Through Brick Walls with Military Records” by Kate Eakman, senior researcher at Legacy Family Tree. She will show you how to use military records to break through brick walls in your genealogy research.
The event will take place on the MyHeritage Facebook page. If you can’t make the live session, you can watch it as a recorded session at a later date.
