In celebration of World UFO Day, Flip-Pal asks: have you ever thought about an ancestral connection to UFOs and aliens?
Did you have ancestors with a family story concerning a UFO sighting? Is the story documented in any way, perhaps by the US Government? One way to find out is by researching the Project Blue Book – UFO Investigations database (http://www.fold3.com/title_461/project_blue_book_ufo_investigations/) available for free over at http://www.fold3.com/
Project Blue Book – UFO Investigations
With almost 130,000 pages of stories and images, Project Blue Book consists of “sanitized case files on sightings of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) of Project Blue Book, the U.S. Air Force investigation into UFOs that were sighted between June 1947 and December 1969.” Published in 1976 by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), Project Blue Book lists UFO-related investigations from all over the world.
Since names of witnesses are often redacted or blocked out, it may be difficult to make the connection between an actual incident and your ancestor, but the documents in Project Blue Book are a fascinating read nonetheless.
Document Your Family’s UFO Stories
You’d be surprised if you were to include a question such as “Have you ever seen a UFO?” or “Do you remember a UFO sighting where you grew up?” when interviewing family members. And what do you do if the answer is yes or the person brings out newspaper clippings or a scrapbook about the incident?
With a Flip-Pal mobile scanner you can capture every detail and add it to your research. And you’ll create a lasting memory about a close encounter that will fascinate other family members for years to come.
