Description

The index of marriages for California for 1951. A notable person listed in this record is Frieda M. Wond and her husband, Conrad H. Lambrecht. Born on August 31, 1913, in Gelsencherkin, Germany, Lambrecht immigrated with her family to the United States in 1926, and naturalized in November 1929. She enlisted in the Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps (WAAC) on February 24, 1945, and worked in Army general hospitals. In 1951, while still serving in the WAAC, she married Conrad Lambrecht, a Warrant Office in the United States Army. Lambrecht died on April 4, 1995, and is buried in the Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell.

In 2017, the University of Central Florida was one of three universities selected to launch the National Cemetery Administration’s Veterans Legacy Program Project. The program engaged a team of scholars to make the life stories of veterans buried in the Florida National Cemetery available to the public. The project engages UCF students in research and writing and fosters collaboration between students, faculty and local Central Florida schools to produce interactive curriculum for k-12 students. The corresponding website exhibit uses RICHES Mosaic Interface to create a digital archive of related data. The public can use the project-developed augmented-reality app at more than 100 gravesites at the Florida National Cemetery, where they can access the UCF student-authored biographies of veterans.
