Researching World War II Records  (Program)
10:00 am to 12:00 pm

Presented by Sandy Ronayne
The Second World War was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945. The vast majority of the world's countries - including all  the great powers - eventually formed two opposing military alliances: The Allies and the Axis. A state of total war emerged, directly involving more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. The United States entered WWII after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.
On 6 June 1944 - 'D-Day'- Allied forces launched the largest amphibious invasion in the history of warfare. Codenamed Operation 'Overlord', the Allied landings on the beaches of Normandy marked the start of a long and costly campaign to liberate north-west Europe from Nazi occupation.
Come to this class to learn how to research WWII records and to honor those of the "Greatest Generation". Everyone is invited to bring WWII heirlooms (pictures, diaries, etc.) to display and share. If you have a family member who participated in D-Day or a woman who was in the military in WWII, please email Sandy at
