Navy Service Record FOUND!

It was great.  I had a large craft paper envelope with “Charles HOPKINS Personal History” written on it.  I knew I’d been collecting bits and pieces but my early onset dimensia (actually, I believe I developed it in the womb) had me wondering, “What’s in this?”.  It was almost like Christmas, hey wait, it IS the season!

Below is a short slide show of some of Charles E. HOPKINS Navy memorabilia:

Looking for Photos & Service Records

On the last post I asked about the navy service record of Charles HOPKINS.  A reader named Ollie promptly replied that I could search for it at:    http://www.archives.gov/veterans/

If any one beats me to it, please let me know what you find.

Also I’m looking for photos of:

  • Ancestors
  • Meaningful Family Objects (send story as well)
  • Documents of Ancestors – letters, wills, deeds, etc

You can take a picture of any pictures/items you have with your smart phone, I-pad (tablet) or camera.  Please send it along.  There is interest in sharing these visual notes of history, not to mention the important role of teaching through image.
