Birth Years of U.S. Military Veterans

You know you should look for military records for your ancestor, but what war did he serve in? Our friends over at Fold3 created this handy little infographic to use as a rule of thumb. There are exceptions to every rule, but this will get you started and it's a good way to focus your research!

As I stress in class some military records may hold valuable clues to your genealogy research and this chart may  help. Click to enlarge and right click to save to your computer. Good hunting and have a great research day.
