the Library of Congress

experiences of American veterans of World War I (1914-1920), World War
II (1939-1946), Korean War (1950-1955), Vietnam War (1961-1975), and

Library Project:

The goal of this project is to explore and possibly formalize a
partnership between AAHGS-PGCM and a library within the county.
The aim of this partnership would be to acquire and devote resources
to the accumulation of resources which support African American
genealogical research.
