I'm looking forward to this seminar as, since next year will be the anniversary of the beginning of World War I, many of us are planning our 2014 research goals to include World War I interests.

A Research Guide to World War I Service Records. This book will be available for sale at the BCGS seminar, and the BCGS Boutique will offer many other useful books and research aids.
