PUNTA GORDA, FL – The Military Heritage Museum in Punta Gorda will host an event titled Fold 3 by Ancestry on December 3. As part of Punta Gorda Founder’s Day week, the Military Heritage Museum will kick off its new military family history program in the museum’s Academy Library. Veterans, their families and their descendants share an abiding interest in the military experiences and exploits of their ancestors. The Library will be a resource to answer their inquiry “Can you help me find out about my grand-dad in the Civil War or my grandmother in WWII?” School educators can use the capability for the U.S. History classes to stimulate interest and research skills among the next generation.
Fold 3 features premier collections of original military records. These records include the stories, photos and personal documents of the men and women who served in the military. Many of the records came from the U.S. National archives, the National Archives of the U.S. and other international records.
The program will kick off with a seminar at 1:30 p.m. on December 3 focusing on helping visitors discover their family’s military heritage by using our research library’s extensive resources through access to this unique data base. The museum is licensed to provide this service and, to compliment the online search, is the only location in the area able to leverage its military record collections, which go back as far as the Revolutionary War. Expert staff will be available two days a week to aid the discovery of your family’s military heritage. Future seminars will demonstrate advanced techniques in ancestry research and even how to write a book on it!
The Military Heritage Museum is located at 900 West Marion Avenue in Punta Gorda. For more information or reservations, please go to the website and sign up at or call 941-575-9002.
