Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Realizing that surviving veterans of World War I would be in their late nineties and that the Great War was finally passing from "living memory," Schaefer (director emeritus, Annandale, Virginia Family History Ctr.) saw the need for a guide to service records to assist those seeking World War I information. Her book is divided into three parts. The first includes a time line and background on military organization and the types of records available. The second lists alphabetically all the nations involved in the war, with each entry including a brief description of the country's wartime role, information on conscription, types of records available, and a list of suggested readings. The final section covers the war's aftermath, including a chart detailing the redrawn political boundaries. Schaefer has done an excellent job in gathering this information and presenting it clearly. Highly recommended for genealogy collections.?Linda L. McEwan, Elgin Community Coll.,

This is a great book if you are researching your World War I ancestors. Although it has not been updated to reflect using the internet to find out about your ancestor, it does explain where and how to obtain the actual records for each US state and dozens of foreign countries. Well worth the money! You won't be disappointed.

I have bought this book with a huge interest. I went it through. I was focused only on Poland and Imperial Russia.
It is sad that the author does not know history of Poland and wrote on p. 99 that "Poland in 1914- present day existed as the Duchy of Warsaw in the Russia Empire". Well I am afraid that it is true or rather had been but in 1814 not in 1914 !!!
Also I have never heard that Ukrainians were called Little Russians?! (page 105-106), but perhaps it is like that since I am not an American.
I am still going through the suggestions reading and addresses. That Part I believe is ok. So if you really want to find some records about your greatgrandapa, buy it!
