(US) Seeking Military Records? Military Times Article on 9 Tips on Obtaining Missing Records ( and Awards) #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Are you looking for military records for an ancestor? The current issue of
the Military Times has an article that gives nine steps to help you obtain
records and awards. The Military Times received advice >from the National
Personnel Records Center -- NPRC ( St. Louis, MO) for basic steps. There
was a devastating fire in July 1973 which destroyed 18 million personnel
files -- but even if the file you are searching was destroyed some
information may be recovered. That is because the fire destroyed individual
records and unit records were stored elsewhere -- in the National Archives
-- but they are not indexed so the more information you can provide in your
request form the better chance of finding the correct unit record.
To read the article see:

The (US) National Archives National Personnel Records Center in St. Louis
Missouri has information on military records -- not awards. Awards is a
function of each military service department. Requests for the issuance or
replacement of military service medals, decorations and awards should be
directed to the specific branch of the military in which the veteran served.
However, for the Army and Air Force the NPRC the NPRC will verify the awards
to which a veteran is entitled and forward the request along with the
records verification to the appropriate service department for issuance of
the medals. For forms requesting information on service, the National
Archives has a page with information. Go to:
https://www.archives.gov/veterans and see what is available online and more
on awards.

Interesting Ancestral Discoveries #general

David Goldman
 

Greetings, Jewishgenners.

I was finally able to actually obtain documents going back to the 1870s and
even to 1852 >from Zhitomir. One of the unusual findings was that my
great-great-grandfather (the rabbi of Mayaki near Odessa) had been married
in Zhitomir a first time at the age of 21 to a divorcee who was 26 in 1873.
I had previously obtained a record for his marriage to my
great-great-grandmother in Odessa in 1881. Of course no one in my family
ever heard about this, and it appeared extremely strange that a young 21
year old would marry an older divorced woman (who must have died or divorced
him by 1880).

Am I correct (ahem) in assuming that the only probably likelihood is as a
young religious Jew in 1873 he fell in love with a married woman who then
divorced her husband in order to marry him?

I realize this happens nowadays and could always happen, but it still seems
unusual, especially since the obvious first choice would have been a *match*
made with a young virgin and not a divorcee who is about 5 years older than
him. They then had a child in Zhitomir in 1876, whose fate is unknown.

In addition, another record shows that his own father died of an "abscess"
or "ulcer" at age 55 in 1890 (meaning his father was 17 when he was born in
1852). What might we call this illness today in 2017?

Thanks,
David Goldman

Dear JewishGen Family,

Today is #GivingTuesday - a global day of giving back - and it falls
less than a month before Chanukah when we kindle lights of hope.

In this spirit of hope for the future, please give back by supporting
JewishGen, whose mission is to "preserve our history for future
generations."

Because of JewishGen, and its more than 1,000 volunteers, people
can learn about their Jewish family history - no matter their
location! With the simple click of a button (and good internet
access!), JewishGen allows people to access information that
previously would have required a tremendous expense, and
countless hours travelling the world.

In the words of one donor: "Sadly, the family members who might
have answered my many questions have all passed on. Therefore,
it is only through sites such as yours that I may find answers."

Our goal is to raise $18,000 *today* to help subsidize our services.
A gift of any amount will be greatly appreciated, and collectively,
make a tremendous difference. As in past years, gifts of $100 or
more will qualify for our Value Added Services.

FREE GIFT! All JewishGen users who contribute to our Giving
Tuesday campaign - no matter the amount - will receive an
exclusive link to view the upcoming film "My Dear Children" (which
is scheduled to premiere internationally in theaters and on PBS in
2018). This is the first-ever documentary about the anti-Jewish
massacres that swept what is today Ukraine, Moldova, and Belarus
immediately following WWI. These massacres are an often
overlooked piece of Jewish history, and we hope you find this film
informative and meaningful. (A trailer can be viewed here:
https://tinyurl.com/JGMDC).

If you are in a position to do so, please help us continue our
important work. Donations to support JewishGen can be made in
the following ways:

(1) Online via our SECURE website: Please visit:

(2) Via PayPAL: Please visit: https://preview.tinyurl.com/JG17PPGF

to process donations over the phone!
(4) Checks: Please make payable, and send to: JewishGen,

Please give back by supporting JewishGen - an organization that
does so much to preserve *your* history for the future.

Thank you and (an early) happy Chanukah!
