Add Meaning to Your Memorial Day Party – Find Your Ancestors’ Military History!

 

Military Ancestors

We just received word that Ancestry.com is providing special Free Access  this weekend in honor of Memorial Day!

So cool – we immediately went to looked up our dads' service enlistment records and there they were.  Although initially we were unsure abut how this all might practically relate to planning your Memorial Day party as we were using the site we had one of those aha moments – we think access to these military records could actually be integrated into your celebration to add meaning and interest.  We envision the family gathered around the computer oohing and aahing as you discover all sorts of ancestral history.  In fact, if at all possible we recommend  connecting your computer to your television (this might be the excuse you needed to invest in that long coveted Apple TV or other wireless computer to tv content streaming device) so searching your family history becomes an extended family bonding activity.

The Deal

From Thursday May 23rd through Monday May 27, 2013, Ancestry.com is offering Free Access to the large collection of new military collections, draft, enlistment and service records.  Visit Ancestry.com to start your search!

Party Hearty!
