A representative from Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall in Oakland will be on hand at the next meeting of the North Hills Genealogists Club to demonstrate how military artifacts can be used to learn more about the lives of ancestors who served.

The free program titled “Inside a WWII Foot Locker” runs from 6:45 to 9 p.m. Sept. 16 at La Roche University’s Kearns Spirituality Center.

A staff member from Soldiers & Sailors will bring a footlocker full of unique military artifacts from the museum’s collection focusing on World War II.

The presentation will center on what a soldier’s life was like during the war by examining the equipment they carried.

Kearns is located at the intersection of Babcock Boulevard and Duncan Avenue in McCandless.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
