Here is a great graphic showing the Birth Years of Veterans that you can use to see if your ancestor could have served in a conflict/war. Not all of the wars are listed but the biggest ones are. Ancestry.com states the graphic came from Fold3 but I was unable to find it on their website. I would have preferred to link directly to it.
This post lends itself well to a question someone sent me. Bob wanted to know why I always put Ancestry.com and not just Ancestry. With all of the other websites I reference I leave the .com or .org etc. off. Great question! There is a reason I do this. There happens to be a a publishing company in Utah named Ancestry and I want to distinguish between the two.
