12 Days of Genealogy: Family Tree Pocket Reference Download
Posted by Diane

On the ninth day of Christmas, my genea-Santa gave to me … the Family Tree Pocket Reference download!

The Pocket Reference is a handy, timesaving collection of genealogy reference material—resources, tips, lists and need-to-know facts. The downloadable version is a fully searchable PDF. You'll get definitions for unfamiliar terms and acronyms, US state fast facts, family tree software at a glance, genealogy data websites, surname origins, cultural naming practices, census dates and questions, US immigration ports and more.

Here’s one quick example of what you'll find the military records section: 

Depending on when your ancestor was born, here are the war records to look for:

  • Born 1726-1767: Revolutionary War (1775-1783) records
  • Born 1762-1799: War of 1812 (1812-1815) records
  • Born 1796-1831: Mexican War (1846-1848) records
  • Born 1811-1848: Civil War (1861-1865) records
  • Born 1848-1881: Spanish-American War (1898) records
  • Born 1849-1885: Philippine Insurrection (1899-1902) records
  • Born 1872-1900: World War I (1917-1918) records
  • Born 1877-1925: World War II (1941-1945) records
  • Born 1900-1936: Korean War (1950-1953) records
  • Born 1914-1955: Vietnam War (early 1960s-1973) records
