Honor Roll Project

The Honor Roll Project is an effort to transcribe and photograph military honor rolls.  The transcribed names make the soldiers available for search engines, so that descendants and family members can find them on the internet.  It is a simple, but very rewarding project.  If you would like to participate, leave a comment here, or an email at vrojomit@gmail.com

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

The American Battle Monuments Commison has a website with information about finding the names of veterans on the World War I, World War II and Korean War.  It manages 24 overseas military cemeteries, 25 memorials, monuments and markers.
