World War I Veterans' Names Master Index

"Researching an ancestor who served the U.S. in World War I can be difficult, as there aren't the sorts of comprehensive indexes and collections of service records available as for (other U.S. conflicts)."  So David A. Norris began his article in the Jun-Jul 2019 issue of Internet GENEALOGY

"Drawn from National Archives microfilm, this collection has index cards for anyone who served the U.S. Armed Forces during World War I, and who made claims for Veterans Administration pension insurance or veterans' bonus payments."

The full name/title for this collection on Family Search (and the full title of Norris' article) was "Veteran's Administration Master Index, 1917-1940."

Will this resource be helpful to you?
