Veteran Memorial Service

Military Research

Have you ever wondered if you have ancestors who served in the United States military? Or maybe you know of a family member who served and you want to know more about their time in service. At Discovering Connections, we specialize in uncovering and highlighting the veterans in your family tree.

     U.S. military records date back to before the Revolutionary War and hold a vast amount of details about your family's veterans and their lives.

     Many different types of military records exist, at both the state and federal level. From draft records and pension records, to bounty land warrants and compiled service records, the task of navigating these documents can be daunting to tackle.

     That is why Christine has made it her mission to help unravel people's military ancestors' mysteries and tackle the challenging area of military records. As a servicewoman herself, keeping the service and sacrifices of her fellow servicemen alive through military genealogy is so important to her.

     In addition to your ancestor's military service records, many unit histories and battle records have been written that provide more details about what a soldier's time in service was like.

     Even if your ancestors never served in the military, there may still be military records that exist for them. In 1940, every male between the ages of 21 and 45 was required to register for the draft. These records can still help shed light on your ancestors and their stories.

     Allow us to help bring your military ancestors' stories to life by scheduling a 30 min free consultation with us by clicking the link below.
