      Program: "Introduction to US Military Records"
      Speaker:  Keith and Darlene Pyeatt

Millions of American citizens have served in the armed forces, so chances are good that one or more of your ancestors served at some time or another in the military, at the Federal, State, or perhaps both levels. This presentation will introduce you to the wealth of genealogical information about our ancestors and sometimes their families these records can provide.

Keith & Darlene Pyeatt: 
Keith is a fifth generation Oregonian while Darlene a native of Indiana. Both are graduates of Brigham Young University. Keith is currently pursuing accreditation as a professional genealogist, served on the board of directors of the Genealogical Forum of Oregon for several years and is currently chair of the Italian Special Interest Group of that organization. Both serve as family history consultants. They enjoy researching together, especially on-site research, and speaking to genealogical organizations. 

We will be in the Anderson Room, with a video projector and wall screen. 

Please join us if you live in the Salem area. Our programs are always open to the public.
