In keeping with our November program tradition, IRGS has asked Craig R. Scott, CG, FUGA, to speak to our members and guests on military research. One of the difficulties that you will encounter in military research is that there are no compiled military service records for Regular Army personnel. Therefore it is up to the researcher to create such a compilation. Scott is known for giving energetic and enlightening lectures, loaded with tips and information one cannot find in the normal course of genealogical research. This is truly a meeting you do not want to miss!
NOTE: THE MEETING IS ON THE 3RD TUESDAY DUE TO VENUE AVAILABILITY
