I haven't posted a blog entry in a while and it occurred to me that I should be as I research different projects.
Recently, I've had the privilege of researching two unrelated projects that are connected by a period in time. That period was World War II. The first project is of the tragic end of 8 lives lost on American soil for the war time effort. You can read about that here on my page under The Katy-Did Crash. The second is of a family who immigrated from a war torn country to avoid persecution and raised their families. This is more difficult to research because of name changes and the secrecy behind the whole event. They didn't want people to know who they were for fear of being killed.
What research have you done for your family in war times? How has that affected your research, your emotions? What conclusions have you come to during your research about how your family survived?
I'd love to hear about your war stories so feel free to comment below. As always enjoy your Adventures in Genealogy!
