WWII Army Enlistment Records -- FREE via NARA


NARA has made available (for FREE), World War II Army Enlistment Records (Record Group 64). I searched on the word enlistment in the Access to Archival Databases (AAD).  There are over 7.5 million records in this collection!

You can search on a name in the AAD search box or if you click on “view records” all of them are listed ... a little bit too much to scroll through.

Each record has army serial number, name, residence state & county, place & date of enlistment, and year of birth.  The image above is for the 1st entry that I came across.

You can use the search box to reduce how many “hits” you receive.

You can search on just one person or search on who enlistment from your county.
