US WWII enlistment records #general


Renee Steinig
 

I found a relative listed in the
U.S. World War II Army Enlistment Records, 1938-1946
on Ancestry.com. According to Ancestry, the source of this data is
Record Group 64 at the National Archives in College Park, Maryland --
WD AGO Form 317 (used >from 1941-45), WD AGO Form 372 (used from
1945-46), and Enlisted Reserve Corps Statistical cards. This database
is also available on the National Archives website --
http://aad.archives.gov/aad/.

Two questions:

1) Do the original forms contain any details not included in the
online database -- in particular. exact dates of birth, which would be
so helpful to identifying deceased veterans' in the Social Security
Death Index?

2) Can anyone recommend a contact person at NARA to write about these
military ecords?

Thanks.
