Amazing opportunity to sift through newspapers!
Today's the 75th anniversary of the #WWII Allied bombing of Dresden, Germany. It killed 25,000 people (with some estimates much higher) and leveled much of the city. This photo shows Dresden before the war.

By searching through Ancestry® records, you can see that this death toll took place in only a 3 day period.
This year is the 75th anniversary of many WWII moments. Do you have a family member who served in the war?
Is there a movie in your family tree?
Sam Mendes, director of @1917, was originally inspired by tales from his grandfather Alfred H Mendes. This is a record showing the medals Alfred H Mendes was awarded in WWI.
What film would you make from your family history?
