Memorial Day 2022 Contributions to The Honor Roll Project

Veterans Memorial Park, Manchester, New Hampshire

This Memorial Day 2022 we have contributions from Connecticut, Hawaii, Kansas, New York, and New Hampshire.  The volunteers were  Sandra Molloy Dahfred,  Marian Burk Wood, Amanda Pape, Anna Matthews, Marcia Philbrick, Christine K. McCloud and Diane Romanosky.  We are adding names and photos from six states and territories, including our first contributions from the state of Hawaii and Northern Marianas!  

The Honor Roll project collects transcriptions of the names of the veterans on military honor rolls seen in parks, schools, public buildings, books and other places all over the USA and abroad.  You can read the complete list at this link:  

Twice a year, for Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day, genealogy bloggers photograph and transcribe these honor rolls, and publish them on the internet.   The act of transcribing these names makes them available to be found by search engines such as Google, Yahoo, and others.  Family members searching for genealogical or military information on relatives, ancestors or friends will be able to see the honor rolls, read the names, and learn about their family’s military history.

It is a simple, easy project.  However, it brings unexpected joy to searchers who did not know their ancestors were in the military, or did not know the specific military history, or sometimes they did not even know the town where their ancestors lived.  Seeing their family member’s name on an honor roll can be the beginning of finding more genealogy data, military records and historical information.
