Birth Dates Suggest What Wars an Ancestor May Have Fought In!

Family Tree Magazine posted this infographic on its Facebook (FB) page and asked readers to share it.  I am happy to do this.  It’s a great image summarizing what wars an ancestor may have served in based on his birth-date.  Additionally, it reminds of some of the lesser known conflicts that we don’t always consider.  Service paperwork and especially pension paperwork can contain so many juicy clues!


Did this infographic inspire you to check for service for one of your ancestors?  Were you successful?

Do you know of other infographics like this that would be invaluable to your fellow genealogy researchers?
