VIRGINIA WORLD WAR I QUESTIONNAIRES

After the war, the Virginia War History Commission was created to gather information about Virginians’ service during the conflict.  Nearly 15,000 records were collected, from both men and women, including family information, residence, pre- and post-war occupations, where they served during the war, and their overall impressions from their service.  Some records are frustratingly incomplete, while others include amazing added details such as photographs, personal comments, and additional notes from family members.  The collection is searchable through several fields.
