Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This groundbreaking effort from notable author Neagles (Summer Soldiers, Ancestry, 1986) is one of the best genealogical research aids to come along in some time. Nine chapters describe the general types of military records (e.g., enlistment forms, muster rolls, pension applications); military history resources available at the National Archives in Washington, D.C., and its branches, as well as other repositories around the nation; and published sources pertaining to each state and to the United States in general. A useful summary of America's military history is provided in an appendix. This information, together with a solid index, makes this volume both useful and easy to use. This blockbuster publication fills a nearly complete void in genealogical research literature. It will appeal not only to genealogists but to anyone engaged in military history research. Highly recommended for libraries acquiring works in the areas of genealogy, military history, bibliography, and biography.

Review

"This book will appeal not only to genealogists but to anyone engaged in military history research." -- Judith Reid, Library of Congress

From the earliest days of the United States, millions of American citizens have served their country in a military capacity. Most families have one or more members who have served in America's armed forces. For this reason, genealogists and military historians wisely look to military records for information needed to enhance their research. Enlistment forms, muster rolls, pension applications - records created as a result of individuals' military service are extremely valuable because they often contain detailed personal information. U. S. Military Records describes the records that are available and where they can be found. Gathered in the volume is source information for the National Archives and its adjuncts; historical institutions and archives of the armed forces; the Department of Veterans Affairs (Veterans Administration); state archives, libraries, and historical organizations; and such patriotic organizations as the Daughters of the American Revolution. Extensive bibliographic listings of published sources for the United States in general and published sources for each state are also included. -- Midwest Book Review

This book was really outdated and it is of very little help to me. I knew it was used but it is really outdated for any research in different military sources. I will keep it and may find some use but not very much. It should of been stated the copyright dated and let others know how old it was.

This volume was highly endorsed in a geneology class as the must have guide to military records. Got excellent price and was in great shape for a previously owned volume.
