Researching WI veterans on Nov 3

The Fond du Lac County Genealogical Society invites the public to their meeting at 6 p.m. on Monday, November 3, at the Fond du Lac Public Library. They’ll host Russell Horton from the Wisconsin Veterans Museum in Madison, who will talk about how to research Wisconsin veterans.

The son and grandson of Army veterans, Horton is the reference and outreach archivist at the Wisconsin Veterans Museum. He earned his undergraduate degree in History from UW-Madison and master’s degrees in History and Library Science from UW-Milwaukee. Horton is author of the article, Unwanted in a White Man’s War: The Civil War Service of the Green Bay Tribes. He helps researchers ranging from genealogists to professional historians learn about the stories and sacrifices of Wisconsin veterans.

The Fond du Lac County Genealogical Society promotes researching the lives of our ancestors to show individuals against the backdrop of history. Guests and new members always are welcome to their regular meetings, held at the library on the first Monday of the month.
