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!

    page says:

    Sorry, the page you were looking for in the blog GenealogyBank – The Official Blog does not exist.
    Go to blog homepage.

  2. Yes – I took it down the file we put up was missing a page – so I wanted it to be complete. They are fixing that and I will put it up.

    It is complete and available on GenealogyBank – but we should have the “free” downloadable version on the site ASAP.

    My apologies for the delay.
    Tom
