The MacArthur Museum of Arkansas Military History, in partnership with the Arkansas History Commission, will host a free workshop on researching military records on Saturday, August 16th from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. The museum is located at 503 E. 9th St. in downtown Little Rock’s MacArthur Park.
Most people today have family members who served in the military, from the Civil War, through World Wars I and II, to the present. Participants of this workshop will learn where to begin their research on finding records that pertain to a family member’s military service. With new technology and the internet, researching personal records has never been so easy. However, these venues will not help if a person does not know where to go to begin the search. This two hour workshop, conducted by Arkansas History Commission staff, will educate the public on resources available to research military records.
Hand-outs will be available, but it is highly encouraged that workshop participants bring plenty of paper and writing instruments. Light refreshments will also be provided.
