A Helpful Military Record…

26 May

Yes, it has been a while. I had a string of good genealogical luck some time ago, but found myself frustrated and busy and thus my efforts tapered a bit. Also, my free Ancestry account ran out and I found it inconvenient to go to the local Family History Library to continue to access Ancestry.

But that all changed a week or two ago when I was invited to obtain a free Ancestry account! So, here I am, and I hope to be here more often…

Today is Memorial Day, so I decided to see what was out there regarding my uncle Leon Mickelson. I found the following record:

I knew everything on here, so no new information to report. But what is useful here are the newspaper article references that may share a little more about my uncle and his life and sacrifice. The newspapers listed are Herald Journal, Salt Lake Tribune, and the Deseret News. I don’t know which paper “Tele” refers to, or “Let” either. So, I’ll need to look that up.
