Free Ancestry.com Military Records 'til June 6
Posted by Diane

Ancestry.com has made access to its military records collection free through June 6 to commemorate the anniversary of D-Day, when the Normandy invasion began in 1944. You can both search and download record images (you'll need to register with the site before viewing records).



I found my great-grandfather's WWII draft registration card, which he signed April 26, 1942, when he was 61 years old. This "old man's registration" called on men born from April 28, 1877, to Feb. 16, 1897. It's the only WWII draft registration available to the public.

Now if only I could find a WWI draft registration card for him, which would fill in a big genealogical gap...

Spell your great-grandfather's name. Was he married in during WWI and where do you think he lived, I will try a lookup for you.

Here's what I found:

If the one or both of following are his children he may have married between 1910 and 1915 in the area. Also, Asmara was Catholic, her family must have loads of records at St. Mary's including marriage, baptism death etc. If nothing else it would rule her out as related.

Obit:
Asmara Lucy Haddad, 87, of Marietta, died at 9:06 p.m. Sunday (Sept. 4, 2005) at Marietta Memorial Hospital.

She was born Oct. 9, 1917, in Marietta, to John and Iole DeNino Brunicardi. She was a graduate of St. Mary?s Catholic High School. The Brunicardi family had operated Brunicardi?s Restaurant on Putnam Street. Her husband, George, had owned and operated the Marietta Wholesale Grocery on Front Street for many years. Asmara was a member of St. Mary Catholic Church and the Catholic Women?s Club. She was an avid reader and was known for her hobby of collecting knick-knacks and was also an avid fan of Notre Dame.

She is survived by two daughters, Georgeann Burton (James) of Atlanta, Ga., and Lucy Haddad of Marietta; a son, Michael J. Haddad (Ida) of Columbus; six grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; and by Rita Offenberger, a close personal friend of the family.

She was preceded in death by her husband, George Richard Haddad on Sept. 24, 1977; they had been married on Jan. 13, 1942. She was also preceded in death by two sisters, Mary Kidd and Italia Brunicardi.

Memorial Mass will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday at St. Mary Catholic Church. Burial will be in Mound Cemetery. Friends may call from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at the Marietta Chapel of .

You are so sweet to look all this up! I would have responded to your first post by saying I've searched (we have an account) and been unable to find someone I'm sure is him. I've done enough research to tell that the people you've posted information on aren't him (I've come across some of them on similar searches).

But, thank you again--genealogy is full of generous people (and, you have the distinction of being our first blog poster).

Dear Claudia,

You are amazing! What a wonderful thing to do. Be careful: there may follow a deluge of requests. (even from me)

To quote Diane Haddad, "genealogy is full of generous people." I find the most generous ones I know are involved in family research.

In keeping with that, I've put several genealogy goodies on my site: http://www.ShoeStringGenealogy.com/ssg1.htm, which are all FREE, by the way. Look and learn.

Happy Dae.

One entire day has passed already, and there's no way to access these free records at Ancestry.com. What kind of a come-on scam is this?

Hi, Bob,
If you go to Ancestry.com, there's a box on the right that says "Find your family's heroes in our military collection. Free through D-Day." Clicking there should take you to the search page. I'll edit my post to link there. Best of luck!
Diane
