Veteran's Day Transcription Project


Here is a list of genealogy bloggers who have transcribed the honor rolls on Veteran's and September 11th Memorials. These transcriptions make the names available for search engines. This allows descendants, researchers and family members to find their heroes on the internet. It is a simple, but very rewarding project. Thank you for participating!

Comments from family members:

"I never knew my ancestor was in the Civil War until I Googled his name and found it on your blog!  Thanks so much for your project - Charles Chase"  13 Dec 2011

" Thank you! Aina Bernier- daughter of Ernest Albert Bernier, Jr."  27 Jan 2011
