US Military Records From 1656

Genealogy Quest has posted lists of men serving primarily in the American military since 1656.

The lists include serving, missing in action, deaths and liberated prisoners of war --the lists vary by military conflict.

I have no affiliation with Genealogy Quest and am posting this only for the information for those researching military records.

Thank you to the Ventura County Genealogical Society for alerting me to this
genealogically interesting find

  1. Thanks for posting this exciting information. It is really great that there is so much valuable information out there for folks wanting to learn about their family history and military heritage. We should also keep in mind that there are still a great deal of military records still tucked away at the National Archives which have yet to be set up for digital preservation. Military research specialists can access these for family members who want to learn about their relative or family member's military service. Here is a link to a group that specializes in this kind of research which might be useful for some folks:
