In 2020 I am teaching my military research webinars one final time. I have chosen to focus on other areas of the military and family story this year.

The webinar registration links for the final military research webinars I’m teaching are now live. If you are interested in learning how to do WWI, WWII, Korea or Vietnam War research, I encourage you to register for Part 1 and Part 2 today. Everything I teach applies to all four wars.

If you have someone from any war who is still MIA or died while in service, you will also want to register for the Prisoners, The Missing and The Dead.

This is the final time I am teaching these classes. I’m soon to release the webinar registration for the family secrets and ancestral healing classes.

Please feel free to share this with your genealogy groups as no one else in the country is teaching military research in this way. I created the research strategies and process and give you a clear path to finding the answers.

Robert & Virginia Brouk 3 weeks before he died training pilots.

“Finding the Answers is possible when you do 20th Century Military Research. Even when the records burned.”

In 2010 when I wrote my first book about my AVG Flying Tiger cousin Robert Brouk, I had no idea how to research WWII service. I knew the records burned and was afraid no answers could be found. However, after writing that book and knowing I had to research the stories of my other military family members, I embarked on a journey which took thousands of hours and several years to develop the strategy to find the answers and research any branch for any 20th century war, even if the records burned.

By 2012 I was teaching these strategies I was creating and by 2013 I started releasing the first of my military research books. After eight years of teaching these research classes, I am ready to move on. If you would like to know all the secrets to finding the answers, you will want to sign up for this webinar today. This is the last time I will teach this class.

WEBINAR DESCRIPTION

World War II research is surrounded by stories and myths which often give people the perception they cannot obtain any information about military service. What most people do not realize is military research should be done in two parts. Starting at the end with a discharge unit will usually lead you down the wrong path where you will waste time and money.

This 1.5 hour webinar will focus on what is available first at home and then within the archives and online repositories. You will learn how to put a timeline of service together, how to properly reconstruct military history, what can be found within service files and company-level types of records, and where else to look. At the end of this webinar you will have the tools to proceed to the next step in military research – contextual history.

A webinar on learning how to research the second part – contextual records – will be held in February 2020. Registration for that webinar will open 6 January 2020.
