KS: WWII Veteran Information

by

Do you have a Kansas relative who served in World War Two? Would you like to find out? Check out today’s State Agency Database Highlight:

World War II Kansas Veterans Index – “This database contains more than 227,000 entries of male and female Kansas veterans of the armed forces who served between September 16, 1940 and June 30, 1946. This comprehensive data comes directly from Adjutant General Selective Service Board lists.”

Here is a sample record:

Name Service Service # Registration Place Comments
Smith, John A. Inducted 17 February 1944, Navy 9566451 Registered, order # 11608 Hutchinson, Reno Co. (Board # 3)

With a person’s service number, additional records from the military may be available if you are the veteran or their next of kin. See http://www.archives.gov/veterans/index.html for details.

The Kansas page of State Agency Databases Across the Fifty States is maintained by Bill Sowers of the State Library of Kansas.
