Military Repatriation

The Department of Defense has a mission to locate and reestablish communication with relatives of service members missing in past wars.

The American History Company has a contract with the U.S. Army to conduct genealogical research. I work as a genealogist for the American History Company.

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

U.S. Army Casualty and Memorial Affairs Operations Division: 800-892-2490

The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency website has further information on repatriation efforts.

    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.
