Veterans and Lineage Society Records

Records of veterans’ organizations and lineage societies may be found at their national headquarters or at state archives, historical societies, and public libraries. Some societies require members to submit applications documenting their ancestry back to a soldier. The applications typically provide birth, marriage, and death information, as well as establish relationship through multiple generations from the applicant to the qualifying ancestor. They may publish membership lists and other records. For eligibility requirements, write to the society’s national headquarters. These Wiki pages give addresses of some organizations that have significant material of use for family history research. Additional veteran and patriotic organizations can be located in:

  • "Encyclopedia of Associations" by Maurer, Christine and Tara E. Sheets, eds. 33rd edition. Vol. 1, pt 2. Annual. Detroit: Gale, 1998. Section 12. (FHL 973 E4gr) (Worldcat) Provides addresses and phone numbers as well as a description of the organizations, their publications, and references to any library or research materials they maintain.
