Remembering the Space Shuttle Disaster

Space Shuttle Disaster - Challenger

There are moments in our lives when we remember certain monumental events in our collective history depending upon our age. And for those events that took place before our time, very often there are family stories passed down in writing or that are part of our family’s oral history. The attack on Pearl Harbor. The assassinations of Kennedy, King and Kennedy. 9-11.

Today marks the 25th anniversary of the Space Shuttle Disaster when the Challenger exploded 73 seconds after launch.  Many genealogy bloggers will be posting their memories of that day on January 28, 1986 at their own sites. Here are the latest posts from members of GeneaBloggers:
