World War II Research – Do you know where to begin?
December 7, 1941 – Japanese forces bomb Pearl Harbor. December 8, 1941 – President Franklin D. Roosevelt asks Congress to declare war on Japan. World War II - we were all affected by the war in one way or another. Perhaps you have a Father still living who fought in the war, or you have friends or loved ones who fought and gave their life. What do you know about these brave people? What became of them? Unfortunately, many records for this period are “missing,” or lost. But are they?
