The Library of Virginia is the most important repository of military records of Virginians who served in various ways from the commonwealth's founding to the end of World War II. Hosted by the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown as part of its ongoing “Preserving Your Family History” workshop series in partnership with the Library of Virginia, this workshop presents records unique to the Library, as well as records available on microfilm and in digital format from institutions such as the National Archives, including printed resources. Service in the Revolutionary War, the Civil War and World Wars I and II will be highlighted, along with militia service through the centuries and lesser-known conflicts such as the War of 1812 and the French and Indian War. A separate ticket is required to attend this workshop. To learn more, visit historyisfun.org/forgotten-soldier/workshop-series.
