For people researching family history, Fold3.com is a convenient gateway to millions of military records and more, including naturalization documents, passport applications, and city directories. This program will provide an overview of Fold3’s wide-ranging genealogical content and then demonstrate, step by step, how to navigate the site, with specific examples of research strategies for military and non-military documents. Attendees will also learn how to create or expand memorial pages for ancestors who served in the military, accessible to anyone who searches on Fold3. Special note: Connecticut residents can access Fold3 databases for free via the Connecticut State Library, with a free state library card.
