Texas WWICC Website and Forum

Mike and Will Visconage have done a great job of putting together a website for us.  Click the picture above to visit the site. 

A couple of the notable features are, a forum and events areas. 

The FORUM will be a great place to share information and have discussions with other interested people about many topics.  Take a look and let us know if you would like  a "board" on a topic not listed.

Under EVENTS, you can list events you are hosting or learn about.

This website can be a great way to build our new community of people interested in the WWI Centennial.  Give it a try.

New Contacts and Outreach Information Available.
Our contacts and outreach organizations are over 100.  To make it convenient for you to keep up and reach out to others, we have added a spreadsheet to the website.

Under the ABOUT tab, you will find the RESOURCES area. You will need to log in to use this area.  Registering and logging in are simple.  On the bottom right corner of the home page you will find links to: Login, Log Out, and Register. Just click Register and follow the instructions. 

One of the great resources is a list of over 100 people we are in contact with.  Look for it under the Outreach section.
Texas Veterans Search Underway
There are some impressive results being uncovered by a handful of researchers looking for WW I Texas veterans.  Bill Morris of the Fort Worth Aviation Museum, has discovered death records on over 2,500 Texas veterans. That is more than the total number of Texans listed with the Library of Congress for WW I. 

Others are searching cemeteries for graves or looking for African-American veterans.
  You can learn more on the Facebook page and the website in the Forum.
