This record collection in Ancestry LE contains cards that record details for members of the U.S. armed forces interred in national cemeteries. There are also cards for some prisoners and civilians buried in national cemeteries.
The cards in this record collection are “control forms” for burial lots in national cemeteries. The cards were created between 1928-1962, but provide coverage for some interments occurring as early as the 1820s. The cards list details that may include the following:
regiment or vessel
serial number (if applicable)
war(s) served in
dates of death and interment
grave section and number
re-interment/replacement of headstone info (if applicable)
The card usually lists a spouse’s name and burial location if buried in the same national cemetery. Ancestry LE is available for use at Central Library and our branches.
