Webinar: Discover your military ancestors

Webinar: Discover your military ancestors


Do you have ancestors who fought and died in service? Would you like to learn more about their military history?

In honor of Remembrance Day and Veterans Day on November 11, we’re offering a special free webinar about digging deeper into military records to uncover the stories of your ancestors’ pasts.

Join Mike Mansfield, Director of Content Production, and Laurence Harris, MyHeritage’s Head of UK Genealogy, who will guide us in searching through MyHeritage’s military record collections to learn more about the roles our ancestors played during times of war.

Military records are valuable resources which provide insight into the lives of those who served in the armed forces, as well as their families. These records teach us more about our family heritage and are a good way to honor our ancestors’ memory and service to their country.

    Would love to know how to learn how to find records of the 1st Louisiana Infantry, Co. M – ca. the Spanish-American War. My great-grandfather (who was in the Cavalry during the Indian Wars, post-Civil War and also served as Gen. Sheridan’s secretary) enlisted with the 1st Louisiana Volunteers, Co. M but I cannot find record of that. However, I did find a record that showed he was transferred from the 1st LA Volunteers to the Hospital Corps on May 1, 1898. By October of that year, he passed away in Florida. Anyway, I do not know when he enlisted with the 1st LA Volunteers, Co. M, and have been able to learn little about that regiment. The Army register I did locate showed that he had been working as a journalist. Where can I learn more about the LA Volunteers, Co. M, and how can I find out when he joined up? He was born in Dublin, Ireland in 1847 (though his age was wrong on the record located) and his name was Henry David Gregg.
