On Friday, April 10, the Doughboy Foundation will present the latest in its World War I webinar series: "Finding Your WWI Ancestors." Author Debra Dudek will lead this introduction to World War I genealogy research for American military and noncombatant forebears starting at 1 p.m. Eastern. Topics include resources, tips and tricks, and more. The webinar will close with a special screening of the seven-minute educational short "They Deserve to be Remembered” on the war and those who fought it, narrated by Gary Sinise.
Participants will receive a digital copy of the 100-page "WWI Genealogy Research Guide,” authored last year by Dudek with a foreword by Col. Gerald York, grandson of Medal of Honor recipient Alvin York. It is provided courtesy of the Doughboy Foundation and the World War One Centennial Commission (WW1CC).
