I’m working on several projects currently in preparation for my return to Europe to give several presentations on World War II research and writing. If you live in Europe and have conducted research on World War II or adopted graves, I’d love your feedback to the following questions. Thank you for your assistance!
1. Why did you start adopting graves or doing research on U.S. soldiers?
2. Are you involved in any organizations for grave adoption or research in Europe?
3. Have you traveled to the U.S. to meet veterans, families, or do research? When and what did you do?
4. What difficulties have you encountered attempting research from Europe?
5. What have your research goals been for each soldier?
6. Did you meet your research goals? How long did it take?
7. What resources did you use to locate information? Family members, Ancestry.com, Fold3.com, websites, libraries, museums, National Archives, European archives, U.S. based researchers?
8. What have you done with the research? Created a website? Written a book? Given a talk?
9. Tips for interviewing veterans – what do you have?
10. Best museums in Europe for WWII research and viewing of artifacts.
11. Best archives in Europe for WWII research.
