The bodies of thousands of American soldiers and airmen from past wars were never recovered or have not yet been positively identified. Debbie Mieszala, CG(sm), featured speaker for the 2012 Indiana Genealogical Society Conference, works on a project to help identify the remains of these lost American soldiers and bring them home to their families. Debbie will describe that project during one of her four lecture sessions at the conference Saturday, April 28, at the Allen County Public Library. The conference also includes a second track of lectures and the society’s annual meeting and presentation of inductees into the Society of Civil War Families of Indiana and the Indiana Territorial Guard. It is open to the public. Cost is $30 for IGS members and $40 for non-members. To register online or print a registration form, visit the IGS website.
