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

When Butler was 99, I did a video and he and I made up.  He was not kind to me as a child, but he did help me to understand his life and what he did.

A source I think we sometimes forget about is the states Adjutant Generals office.They can help with research for soldiers in the state they were born and enlisted.

This link is for German Unit casualties.

Again I used babelfish to translate it.

I used babelfish to translate this site.

It is German military grave registration service.

You need to know basic info on the soldier. DOB Place of birth and the place he died if you know.

Here's a link to the National Archives in Australia.

It has info on what records are available and more.

Comment by Bob Mooney-Pa on January 23, 2011 at 5:56pm

here's a really good link for naval records.

lists deaths of sailors by ranks. Date of death. Closest living relative and dates.

Comment by Bob Mooney-Pa on January 23, 2011 at 4:53pm

This is an interesting site. It is copies of an original guide on how to identify the planes and their countries markings.

Did anyone have a pilot who flew war planes during WW1?
