I recently had an opportunity to talk with Rick Kincaid, National Program Director for Operation Ancestor Search at the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution (NSSAR) and with Kim Harrison, Senior Account Manager at Ancestry.com. The two of them described a new program by the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution, supported financially by Ancestry.com.
I must admit that I had not previously heard of Operation Ancestor Search (OAS). As the two of them talked, I found the project to be fascinating. It is a free NSSAR genealogy training program for Wounded Warriors and their families.
I was able to record the conversation with Rick and Kim and am able to provide it here. I suspect you will be as interested in this worthwhile project as I am.
