Military records on

Following Wednesday's announcement of the Ancestry Military Collection at, I went searching for a list of the databases included in the collection.

There is a search box for the whole collection at You can input a surname and refine the search with a given name, a state, a particular war, etc.

A complete list of the databases can be found at There appear to be over 700 entries in this list.The indexes for all of the databases appear to be free to non-subscribers.

If you do not have a personal subscription to, you can find a library that has Ancestry Library Edition available for use in the library. In Chula Vista and San Diego City and San Diego County, the public library branches all provide this database.
