Journey Through Hallowed Ground - http://www.hallowedground.orgThe Journey Through Hallowed Ground (JTHG) and Ancestry are working together with school systems and teachers nationwide to have students research each of the 750,000 Civil War fallen. They are doing this by studying who from their communities fought and died; then using this research to create memorial pages in their honor as well as dedicating one tree for each soldier, to be planted along the Journey Through Hallowed Ground National Scenic Byway as part of the Living Legacy Tree Planting Project.
National Museum of the Pacific War - http://www.pacificwarmuseum.orgThe National Museum of the Pacific War and the Sons and Daughters of WWII Genealogical Society and Ancestry.com are associated in order to help schools, teachers and families explore the lives of soldiers and others who served in WWII. Education is a key piece to our associateship. Teaching materials and Ancestry resources will be available through ancestryk12.com, as well as www.pacificwarmuseum.org where our mission is to “inspire our youth by honoring our heroes”.
National Society Daughters of the American Revolution - http://www.dar.org/educationThe Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) and Ancestry.com have associated to provide resources to schools, teachers and families to explore the lives of soldiers and others who contributed to securing American independence during the Revolutionary War. Since its founding in 1890, the DAR has amassed a renowned collection of family history records, which are available online through the DAR Genealogical Research System (GRS). The DAR is also passionate about educating youth and supports a variety of different programs, contests, awards and scholarships to help further this goal, along with providing online resources pertaining to the American Revolutionary War, family history/genealogy, the colonial period and early America.
National World War I Museum - https://www.theworldwar.orgThe National World War I Museum and Ancestry have joined together with schools and teachers to have students explore the lives of the soldiers and others who were touched by the impact of the first World War. They are then sharing their stories by creating a memorial page in their honor.
Together We Served - Save Or Veterans Stories - http://togetherweserved.orgToo often, the stories of service and sacrifice of our Veterans are never told and when they finally leave us, some faded photos, a few medals, and perhaps an old uniform are all that are left to remember what they did serving our country. Together We Served's mission is to provide the opportunity for every family member, friend or student to sit down with their Veteran and record their military service and memories, in their own words and photographs, so that their story may live on for their children, grandchildren, and future generations.
