With the 75th anniversary of Pearl Harbor there are more free guides to help
with our research for World War ll.

Ancestry has made available a downloadable 15-page World War ll guide which
covers >from reconstructing records to the St. Louis fire in 1973 which
destroyed most records at the National Personnel Records Center, and
instructions on how to request World War ll records. The guide was prepared
by Jennifer Holik. To download the guide go to:

As mentioned in an earlier post, Fold3.com, an Ancestry company, is offering
free access to its 133 million World War ll records through the month of
December/. Go to: https://go.fold3.com/wwii . Remember for access you need
to register. To read the press release about the special free access see:

I have no affiliation with Ancestry or any of its companies and am posting
this solely for the information of the reader.

The (US) National Archives has a free guide on Finding Information of
Personal Participation in World War ll. To access the download go to:
