The Dakota County Historical Society will host a virtual genealogy presentation called “Finding Military Records & Fold3" by Cathi Weber on Tuesday, Sept. 22 at 7 p.m. The presentation is offered to the public free of charge due in part to funding provided by the Union Pacific Foundation's COVID Relief Grant. To register, please visit the Dakota County Historical Society website.
Registration is required to receive the meeting room invite and passcode. While the event is offered free of charge, donations are encouraged to offset the financial hardships COVID-19 is having on historic sites while they were closed from March through June.
The year 2020 will mark the 75th Anniversary of the end of World War II. Do you know what types of military records are available and where you can access them? How are the records that are available useful to your genealogy quest? This presentation will explore the database Fold3.com and provide tips to assist you in locating your ancestor's military records.
Weber has been conducting genealogy research for more than 40 years and started NorthStar Genealogy to help others with their research and to teach classes. She is president of the Anoka County Genealogical Society and a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists in addition to a genealogy instructor and researcher.
