The Dakota County Historical Society (DCHS) will launch a new Adopt a World War I Soldier Project at an informational session on Saturday, Jan. 12 at the Lawshe Memorial Museum from 10:30 a.m.�12:30 p.m.
The Lawshe Memorial Museum is located at 130 3rd Ave. N. in South St. Paul, Minn. The event is free to the public.
The Adopt a World War I Soldier Project will allow volunteers to select up to five names from the current list of men and women that are known to have served in the military or Red Cross. Through a variety of resources, volunteers will have 30 days to research those people and answer key questions about their service during World War I and their lives after the war.
During the informational session, volunteers can learn more about the project or select names to research. If you have any questions, please contact the Lawshe Memorial Museum at 651-552-7548 or register online at www.dakotahistory.org.
