20141111VetsDayIn the days leading up to Veterans Day today, we’ve run a series of articles on various conflicts in American history. In case you missed any of them, here’s the complete list of posts.

As we pause today to reflect on the service of so many and honor their service, we’ve compiled a Slideshare deck with some tips for identifying who in your family tree may have served, and highlighted some Ancestry collections in which you may find records of their service.

You can download the free deck here or scroll through it above.

On behalf of Ancestry, we thank everyone who has served or is serving and hope that these contributions help you to honor the heroes in your family tree.

    Love this. Wish there were a way to save blogs to the Shoebox or some other reference storage within my Ancestry subscription so I could access later on multiple devices.
