Military Records and Family History Research
Military service records are an essential tool for researching not only individual veterans but also their family members. Because the US military maintained detailed personnel files on 20th Century veterans and compiled pension/service records for earlier service periods, there are endless categories of military service records that are useful for genealogy research of military veterans and their descendants. Our expert research specialists are on-site at archival research facilities nationwide. Let us put our expertise to work so that we can help you tell your ancestor’s story.
Why Military Records Are Vital for Your Family History Research
While much basic information is available on the internet, archival military documents can provide an astonishing trove of rich detail that would take years to compile from other sources. Family address changes, certified copies of birth, marriage and death certificates, divorce decrees, school transcripts, medical records, photos (including women in the service), and personal handwritten letters are among the items frequently found in personnel and pension files. Even paperwork filed by funeral homes and attorneys can provide clues for narrowing down the search for family information.
