Crossing the 38th Parallel: Researching Your Korean War Ancestors

Sometimes referred to as the twentieth centuries “Forgotten War” The Korea War has been overshadowed by the larger conflicts both before and afterwards-namely World War II and Vietnam. This lecture focuses on numerous genealogical records covering this military conflict including Official Military Personnel Files, Morning Reports, after action records, and records of casualties and prisoners of war. Although only lasting 3 years where communist and capitalistic democratic forces staged war against each other; this conflict would not be forgotten as it caused tensions between the participants for decades after the fighting stopped.

Modern Military: Researching Your Vietnam War Ancestors

The conflict of the Vietnam War sometime referred to as the Second Indochina War pit the communist supported area of North Vietnam against the United States backed region that would become South Vietnam. This conflict would follow the earlier First Indochina War that witnessed fighting between the French and their neighbors in North Vietnam. The Vietnam War is recognized as being waged in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia between 1955 and 1975 with the fall of Saigon and the United States officially removed from the fighting. This lecture focuses on genealogical and historical materials to finding ancestors who fought during this conflict.
