Upcoming Meeting News

In April, after a quick business meeting, Toni McKeen will present 20th Century Military Records and their use in genealogy research.  In this presentation, Ms. McKeen will cover what documents are available, the information they contain, how to find them, and how to use them for further research.  She will provide an informative handout which lists helpful military sites.  As a special bonus, she will begin with a lovely Powerpoint presentation of historical WWI and WWII posters and present the lecture in an authentic WWII military jacket.

Toni McKeen teaches genealogy in her hometown of Ridgefield and has been a popular lecturer at various genealogical societies in the New York, Connecticut, Boston, and Long Island areas.
