If you have links to share please feel free to do so.

If you have family involved with WW1 and having trouble researching them. Post the info and lets all work on it together.


World War 1 was also known as the First World War, The Great War and the War to End All Wars. Lasting from 1914 to 1918.

World War 1 became infamous for trench warfare, where troops were confined to trenches because of tight defenses. This was especially true of the Western Front. More than 9 million died on the battlefield, and nearly that many more on the home fronts because of food shortages, genocide, and ground combat.

The term used for American forces was The American Expeditionary Forces

The term used for British forces was British Expeditionary Forces and Territorial Forces

My grandfather was William E. Gilmore b. Chicago and he was in WWI.  This is the beginning of my process.  Not sure what else to say?  I don't know much about his family.  I think he had 2 sisters.  He was married 2x and I am from the second marriage--that was my grandmother.

Here's another example ... this time an officer's papers. This is my great-grandfather's who happens to be the father of my last post.Father & son serving ... though my grandfather never saw battle. Lots of good information found in these papers.

That is Henry A. Wipfler's enlistment papers. It's to bad there hard to read. But it's better then nothing.

I have his medical records from his death. Due to the fire in 1973 that's all that's left.
