PRESS RELEASE: WWII US Army Enlistment Records Now Online

The web-based project, WWII US Army Enlistment Records, originally started out as a personal experiment and means by which I was able to document the research I had carried out on various WW2 US Army personnel, but soon developed into something much larger than that.

The project is essentially a research tool for historians, genealogists and militaria collectors. It allows the searching of almost 9,000,00 enlistment records from WW2 (including WAC personnel) by various parameters. What is perhaps of most interest to collectors is that the site allows the database to be searched by Laundry Number, as well as Army Serial Number, surname and other fields.

The site is free to use, and users can also register for a free account. With an account, you’re able to log in to the website, store records of interest, add photographs, known units and grades and add your personal (and private) research notes about particular records.

The website is available at >
