Most of us will have ancestors who served in the armed forces at some time. Military records can give invaluable insight not only into your ancestor's life whilst in the military but can also give essential genealogical information to help extend your family tree. The course will cover records from the 18th-21st centuries and will discuss both online and original sources. The day will be led by Les Mitchinson, IHGS Director of Education adn Vice Chair of AGRA, who also specialises in military records. "This was a very good course which was both interesting and informative. It exceeded my expectations. I have learned a great deal"
