Beyond the Draft Card: Researching Your Great War Ancestor

Dannell “Danni” Altman-Newell

The draft card is one of the most well-known resources researching Great War ancestors. But, once you’ve located your ancestor’s draft card (or haven’t located it!), where do you look next? With the arrival of the centennial of The Great War comes an increased interest in the soldiers who served and those who supported them. This session will explore some resources available for researching your Great War ancestor, not only online but also what can be found right here in Kansas City! Attendees will have the chance to sound off and share their Great War resources as well.
