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.

Jamieson, Margaret Jean. (1924-2009)
Dayton Daily News (OH) – May 14, 2009

Earlier today I posted the list of recent Genealogist Obituaries.

A sharp-eyed researcher asked if there was a typo in this obituary – noting that she could not find this obituary in the Dayton Daily News (OH) and pointing out that the dateline was tomorrow’s date.

The answer is that GenealogyBank.com partners with newspapers and receives the obituaries directly from them as they are prepared. GenealogyBank is updated throughout the day so it is common for tomorrow’s obituaries to be available today in GenealogyBank. As soon as we receive it – we make it available to you!
