An essential military history source covering 214,000 Americans buried in 24 overseas military cemeteries or named in Tablets of the Missing, this site has broadened its “Greatest Generation” features. Now you can view a live camera feed from the American Cemetery in Normandy or connect with the unofficial Registry of Remembrances of Word War II vets.
Still the best site to start tracing your Blue or Gray ancestors, this database encompasses 6.3 million names from both sides. Plus, read up on regimental histories and battles, along with new articles added for the Civil War’s sesquicentennial.
This site takes you back 150 years, with information on everything from Civil War weapons to battlefield nurses. Dig into the details of every encounter in the Official Record of the war (the “OR”), which you can search or browse.
The three interconnected databases of the DAR Genealogical Research System let you piggyback on the research of DAR members into their Revolutionary War ancestors and those patriots’ more than 7 million descendants. You can also search the catalog of the DAR library, request copies of records and download research guides.
