Stories Behind the Stars project: Stories of WWII Fallen
Sunday, March 6
Stories Behind the Stars project: Stories of WWII Fallen  (All)
1:30 pm to 3:00 pm
Eastern Time (US and Canada)

Stories Behind the Stars was a non-profit initiative started in 2020. It has the ambitious goal to collect the stories of every one of the 421,000 US WWII fallen in one common database on Fold3.com, freely available to all.

To make these stories even more accessible, Stories Behind the Stars is promoting the development of a smartphone app where anyone with the app can use their smartphone camera to scan the name of any of these 421,000 fallen from a memorial or gravestone and get a link to read their stories right there.

Stories Behind the Stars involves more than 1,500 people from all 50 states and more than a dozen other countries. They have completed more than 13,000 stories, including all those from one state (Utah), all of the 2,503 D-Day fallen, and all of the 2,335 Pearl Harbor fallen. We are currently working on writing the stories of all the 7,700 US WWII fallen buried at Arlington National Cemetery.

This presentation will cover how people can participate in the Stories Behind the Stars project to create stories of WWII fallen that will be read at their grave sites and memorials for decades to come. You will learn how you can research military service for family members or any of the other US WWII fallen. Florida had more than 5,000 WWII fallen who need their stories told.

Stories Behind the Stars founder Don Milne had an interest in history that goes back to early childhood. Over the past five decades, he read at least up to a dozen more books each year that cover World War II subjects. With the 75th Anniversary of America's involvement in World War II at Pearl Harbor in 2016, he decided to honor these men by writing about one of them everyday until the 75th Anniversary of the end of the war four years later. During this time he wrote more than 1,250 stories. Circumstances developed that he started Stories Behind the Stars to get others to help write the stories of all the US WWII fallen. Milne and his wife live in Louisville, Kentucky. They have six children and 13 1/2 grandchildren.

Breaking Through Brick Walls with Reason and Logic!
Sunday, June 12
Breaking Through Brick Walls with Reason and Logic!  (All)
1:30 pm to 3:00 pm
Eastern Time (US and Canada)
   Breaking through the proverbial genealogical “brick wall” is hard. Logical evaluation of facts and evidence is required. The scientific method has been used for over a thousand years to advance human knowledge in an orderly way. It is regularly applied to all branches of learning, not just those we think of as “science”. This simple method can easily be applied to family history research to break through brick walls using logic and critical thinking. These techniques are particularly important where direct evidence is not available. 

   This seminar introduces the scientific method, describes how evidence can be evaluated critically and provides real examples to illustrate how the method can be applied to discover unknown relatives or evaluate whether other families are related to yours.

   Presented by Greg Liverman, PH.D., Journalist, Scientist and Corporate Manager Greg has many years of experience researching family history using resources in several states and countries. Greg recently launched Pinewood Genealogy to help people with their genealogy research and genetic genealogy analysis. http://www.pinewoodgenealogy.com/
