support you in your exploration of 
family or community stories from the 
World War I era. Whether you are al-

Jayne Gordon will help you pose the 
right questions and find the right docu-
ments and resources to uncover your 
family or community narrative. This 
program is free thanks to the generous 
sponsorship of the Ruby W. and LaVon
