Military Honor Roll Project

War Memorials and Honor Rolls at MacGregor Park in Derry, New Hampshire

Every year I invite bloggers for contributions to the Military Honor Roll Project.  This is an effort by bloggers to photograph and transcribe the names on their local and ancestral military honor rolls.  Participants have contributed memorials from schools, towns, parks, cemeteries and businesses.  By transcribing the names and listing them in the body of the blog posts, the names are available to be found by family members and descendants using search engines.   I've received lots of fun email and comments from folks who were surprised to find their ancestors online, especially those who didn't know their family members were veterans.

You can find a list of all the participants at the page tab at the top of my blog, or at this link:

If you are a blogger, please consider photographing and transcribing the military honor in your home town.  It is a fun and easy project.   If you don’t have a blog, take a photo and transcribe the names and then ask your favorite genealogy blogger to include in this project at their blog.  You've done all the work, and they can just post it for you.  Please post your projects anytime this week or by November 11th, Veteran's Day. 

After you post your project, please send me the URL in the comments here, or to my email at     This year Thomas MacEntee of the website has agreed to include these posts at his Pinterest board for GeneaBloggers at this link (let me know if you want to be invited to pin your honor roll transciptions to this group board, too):

Have fun looking at all the Pinterest contributions and thanks, so much for considering the Military Honor Roll project!
