Every Friday we’re pleased to offer Legacy Family Tree Webinar subscribers a new bonus webinar just for them! This Friday enjoy a four-part series on World War II by Michael Strauss, AG. If you’re not a member, remember the webinar previews are always free.
Researching Your World War II Ancestors: Part 1 – The Road to War
Part I of our four part series on researching your World War II ancestors is an introduction to the genealogy records for the years immediately preceding the war. It is necessary to go back to the years of the Great Depression to research your ancestors during the war. This lecture includes resources from the New Deal programs including the Civilian Conservation Corps, National Youth Administration along with the Americans who served in the ranks of the Canadian and British military. Part I ends with details about the National Guard and the Selective Service Act of 1940 where the United States prepares for war.
FamilySearch Family Tree is seriously huge. With over a billion unique names, it is the largest family tree in the world.
Navigating such a large tree to connect with your ancestors can be tricky. We recently added a new feature called “Labels” that will, as it continues to develop, provide a new way to place your ancestors in better context.
You’ve used labels on other sites and in apps to easily organize and view similar types of things. You can now add labels to your ancestor’s listing in Family Tree to honor their accomplishments, signify their involvement in a group, or memorialize their profession.
The number of available labels is pretty limited at this point, but it will grow. In the meantime, use the new label feature to explore Family Tree in new and interesting ways.
How It Works
Here’s how you can add labels to your ancestor’s person page and use them to browse the Family Tree.
