Many of our family members fought in World War I and II, stateside and in Europe. The research of both wars is similar, with records created in World War I which continued or were modified in World War II. Learn about resources to help you write the stories of your World War I relative.
You can also use our books, Stories from the WWII Battlefield, to learn how to research World War I service. The process is the same as World War II.
