Talked about in today’s RI Landmarks presentation
The Pacer was briefly talked about in some my Olli RI History presentations.....
As part of Rhode Island's efforts to mark the centennial of America's participation in World War I (1917 - 1919), the Rhode Island World War One Centennial Commission (RIWW1CC) in conjunction with the Rhode Island Historical Society (RIHS) will be hosting "Doughboy Roadshow", an event similar to a combined "Antiques Roadshow" and "Genealogy Roadshow." The event will be held from 9:00 am - 4:00 pm, Saturday, March 10, 2018, in the ballroom of the Aldrich House, 110 Benevolent Street, Providence, Rhode Island, 02906. This event is free and open to the public. The intent of the "Antiques Roadshow" element of the event is to introduce members of the public to experienced appraisers and subject matter experts who can help them correctly identify and appraise their World War I related militaria (excluding firearms), artifacts, documents, etc. The public will be asked to bring their World War I related items (excluding firearms) for identification and a free informal (non-binding) appraisal. The intent of the "Genealogy Roadshow" element of the event is to introduce members of the public to experienced genealogists and archivists who can help them with their research into the World War I veterans in their family tree. Members of the New England Historic Genealogical Society (NEHGS), Rhode Island Genealogical Society (RIGS), and American-French Genealogical Society (AFGS) will be on-hand to help answer questions related to the genealogical research into World War I veterans. The Connecticut State Library (CSL), through a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), will be providing personnel and equipment to digitize relevant items. Please contact Matthew McCoy at [email protected] for further details.
