My colleague, Kaitlyn Enriquez, from NARA’s Still Pictures Branch, has provided an excellent informational guide in How to Research: Photographs Relating to World War II Navy Ships. Previous blogs provided information about researching WWII Army photographs and WWII Air Force (Army Air Corps) photographs.
Our friends at the Library of Congress will highlight the Library’s World War I resources with a series of five free 40-minute webinars in Summer and Fall 2017. Registration is required for each event. After the webinars, the Library will make recordings of the sessions available at their site. Check back two weeks after the event to access the webinar.
Titles of the webinars are:
• Echoes of the Great War: American Experiences of World War I
• Over Here, Over There: Immigrant Veterans of World War I
• Woodrow Wilson Chooses War
• Lest Liberty Perish: Joseph Pennell and World War I
• Charles Hamilton Houston & World War I

My colleague, David Langbart, provides a great navigational guide to these 20th century records in his recent blog post: Department of State Visa Records in the National Archives.
