New Resource on World War II Research

New on our local history and genealogy shelves is the recent publication of the National Archives are Records Administration (NARA) entitled World War II: Guide to Records Relating to U.S. Military Participation. This two-volume work by Timothy Mulligan describes for researchers the more than 200,000 cubic feet of records relating to American activities during World War II. Included are details on the arrangement of the records, their location among the various NARA depositories, notes on available finding aids or indexes, and availability of microfilm copies. If you are a family historian who is interested in delving deeper into your ancestor's service during World War II, you'll want to consult this important work.
This reference set was purchased through a memorial gift of the Alexander Macomb Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, in memory of Judith Myers.
