Did Your Ancestor Serve in this “Little War”?

Michael Strauss, CG, is a national genealogical lecturer and instructor for military courses at the Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research (IGHR), and Virtual Institute of Genealogical Research (VIGR). He was the film historian for the 2015 Academy Award nominated movie “Finding Vivian Maier”.

I think his credentials make him incredibly well-suited to lead this presentation!

Michael writes:

The end of the nineteenth century witnessed the transformation of the United States from a developing nation into a global power. Discover your ancestors that served in the war with Spain along with records of the Boxer Rebellion (1900) and the Philippine Insurrection (1899-1902) in which United States troops participation on land and sea. This lecture focuses on the many records at the National Archives and other research facilities covering all three military conflicts.

Although I don’t *think* I have Spanish-American War ancestors, who knows? It’s a conflict I’ve never really researched. But I certainly had ancestor who would have been military age – so this looks like a good webinar for me! See you there?
