Help Us Publish More Free Records Online
Searchable historical records are made available on FamilySearch.org through the help of thousands of online volunteers worldwide. These volunteers transcribe (or index) information from digital copies of handwritten records to make them easily searchable online. More volunteers are always needed (particularly those who can read foreign languages) to keep pace with the large number of digital images being published weekly online on FamilySearch.org. Learn how you can volunteer to help provide free access to the world’s historical genealogical records online at FamilySearch.org/Indexing.

PBS presented on a research project for children … exploring a single soldier who died at Normandy. http://www.pbs.org/newshour/updates/students-teachers-uncover-remnants-world-war-ii/ It seems relevant because of the research done to illuminate a ‘silent hero.’
