Making the Connection to My Family's Military Timeline back to the American Revolution

Michael Henderson, LCDR USN RET.
Feature Speaker During the Memorial Weekend
 Military Timeline program held at
the Atlanta History Center

As a veteran, descendant of a Louisiana Patriot of the American Revolution and past-president of the Button Gwinnett Chapter SAR Georgia society SAR,  I was honored to be the featured speaker  on Saturday 25 May 2013 during the Military Timeline Program  Memorial Day weekend event held at the Atlanta History Center.  During my presentation, I shared a few thoughts and part of my genealogical  journey which led  me to discovering a patriot ancestor who fought in the American Revolution and also show how I traced my military lineage through ancestors who served in various wars, demonstrating my own family's the Military Timeline.  I demonstrated how it was through my early curiosity about my military lineage and that of my Louisiana Creole heritage, that I was able to make these historic  family connections.

Afterward I signed copies of my new book titled GOT PROOF!

The Memorial Day weekend activities will culminate with the dedication of  the new Veterans Memorial Park outside the Atlanta History Center, 27 May 2013 at 5:00 pm.   

GOT PROOF! My Genealogical Journey Through the Use of Documentation is also available for purchase in the Atlanta  History Center Museum Shop  .
