SATURDAY, APRIL 8, 2017 - "Honoring the Forgotten"

The program for the DOWNSTATE DELAWARE GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY's meeting on Saturday, April 8, 2017, will be "Honoring the Forgotten." The meeting will be held at the Delaware Public Archives, 121 M.L.K. Jr. Boulevard North, Dover, Delaware.

The presenter will be Glenn Layton, Founder of the Col. David L. Stricker Camp 64, Sons of the Union Veterans of the Civil War. He will present a program on how Delaware Civil War soldiers are now being honored. Started in 2014, this grave marking project is working to identify every soldier in Delaware who fought for the state during that war, but does not have any recognition on their stone. Graves are being located and verified as Civil War veterans and markers are being placed to honor them. So far, 200 star-shaped markers have been placed at veteran graves, with many more waiting to be found! Come learn how researching the Civil War soldiers is being done, locating each grave, and inviting family members to take part in the honor tribute.
