Military Repatriation

The Department of Defense has a program to locate and maintain contact with family members of those missing in past wars.

The American History Company has a contract with the U.S. Army to provide genealogical research to identify and locate family members of those missing in past wars. I work as a genealogist for the American History Company.

If you have heard from me about a military case, you may verify that the case has been opened for a genealogy search with the Army’s casualty office. Be prepared to provide the service member’s name and the conflict in which they were lost.

U.S. Army Human Resources Command Casualty and Memorial Affairs Operations Center: 800-892-2490

    I am working on my certification with the National Institute of Genealogy. I have been a volunteer genealogist over 40 years. I would love to work and/or volunteer with your company. I work full time outside of this industry (military aerospace technical writer) and plan to become a fulltime genealogist upon completing my certification, preferably in this field.

      Most government contracts that require credentials are looking for either the Certified Genealogist or Accredited Genealogist credential, which are awarded by two different independent credentialing bodies. You might want to look into that type of credentialing as a next step.
