GenealogyBank.com: core military history books

Cadets graduating at West Point

All month GenealogyBank.com has been highlighting its extensive military resources.

GenealogyBank has the core military reference books that you will rely on in documenting your ancestors with military service.

For example GenealogyBank has the two volume set:

Heitman, Francis B. Historical Register and Dictionary of the United States Army, from its Organization, September 29, 1789, to March 2, 1903. Washington, DC: Government Printing Office, 1903. 2 volumes. (Serial Set Vol. No. 4535, Session Vol. No.96; Report: H.Doc. 446 pt. 1 & 2).

This handbook has the military record of all Army officers from 1789 to 1903 and the details on all battles fought by the Army during that same period.

Another standard reference book for documenting US Army officers is:

The Centennial of the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York. Washington, DC: Government Printing Office, 1904. 2 volumes. (Serial Set Vol. No. 4751, Session Vol. No.125; Report: H.Doc. 789 pt. 1 & 2).

GenealogyBank.com is packed with military information.

Books, newspapers and historical documents.

GenealogyBank has the resources genealogists actually use and rely on to document their family tree.

US Navy Register Online – A Genealogist Writes

Yesterday the GenealogyBank Blog wrote about the US Navy Register going online. It has been very popular. Today I received this note from a genealogist about what she found:

Tom:
I just spent a couple of hours pulling up and printing out [pages from the US Navy Register] from 1922 to 1947 for my father-in-law. What a treat, my husband will be thrilled.

Only missing one year, 1945, but that may be an OCR problem. I’ll work on it later.

Then, just for chuckles, I pulled up my husband’s first ten years — but the server’s timing out on me. Hmm. Guess this is really popular right now!

Thanks Tom!

US Navy Register, full-text, digital copies on GenealogyBank.com

GenealogyBank.com is celebrating Memorial Day all month long.

We have been highlighting the US Army Register and tonight begin to focus on the US Navy Register.

The US Air Force Register will be featured on the GenealogyBank Blog next week.

These core genealogy record groups are terrific examples of the resources found uniquely on GenealogyBank.com.

The US Navy Register is similar in style and format to the US Army Register.

These detailed annual publications give genealogical information about the commissioned and warrant officers in the US Navy.

The first Navy Register was issued in 1814. The format and specific information has varied over the years – but generally the entries include the person’s name, rank, birthdate/place and details of their military service.

Over the next two weeks I will post the links to the earlier volumes and continue to post earlier decades of the US Army Register and begin posting the US Air Force Register.
