Researching Military History

D-OGS is more than happy to announce that we are continuing with in-person free meetings for the public as well as making them available via Zoom for D-OGS members who cannot attend.
Military records are a great source of genealogical information.  Please join us on Wednesday, October 6 at 7:00 PM at the OWASA Community Center, 400 Jones Ferry Rd, Carrboro, OR ONLINE via Zoom, to hear Monika and Martin Fleming present “Researching Military Records”.  This presentation includes information on military records for Korea, WWII, WWI, Spanish American War, and Civil War.   The speakers will share examples of the types of records found and where they are available online and from government agencies. 
Please see our Events Page for more information

Videos of D-OGS Meetings are now online!

We have added a new section on the members-only portion of this website with videos of meetings starting in the Fall of 2020, along with a few older ones that were on YouTube.  Our plan is record all meetings going forward for members to view, but note that some speakers will not allow us to record and as expected there are sometime technical problems.  Here is the list of recordings available now.
Details about each recording can be found in the history of past events section
