Pre 1917 military records are held by the National Archives and Records Administration facility in Washington, DC. This includes US Army enlisted records 1789-1912 and US Navy enlisted records 1798-1885. Due to Covid-19 they are currently closed to the public and operating with severely limited staff (St Louis which is the main US repository for WW2 personnel records has only 10% of staff working). There may be a charge for copies of records but they will notify you of what they are before you get them. It cost me $70.00 to get 147 pages of my father's Navy records from 1945-1965. At is an email address which I would use to find out more information. Good Hunting!

Citizenship has never been a requirement for enlistment in the US military going all the way back to 1776. Officers are  required to be citizens by law. So long as the individual meets  all other  requirements for enlistment they will be accepted. A major benefit is that serving in the military currently reduces the time requirement to gain citizenship significantly. Currently, one must live in the US for  5 years before applying but the time period is waived for current military members as are all fees for citizenship application. After the declaration of war on terror is revoked the max time in the military will be 1 year.

The spammers were able to get into the site and almost ruin it for the users so the admin turned off the signup. You can send an email to and get yourself added to the forums.

The OP said "I have my tree on Roots Magic (free version) if i go for their bells & whistle version will i be able to transfer reasonably easily my existing info", thus my comments. I have used Family Origins for DOS v1.0 thru it's conversion to Roots Magic and versions to 7.6.3. The free Essentials version and the licensed version use the same database structure and SQLite engine. By entering your license key, additional functionality is "unlocked" that is not available in the Essentials version.

A comparison to the two can be found
