I have tried to do several searches on the forum looking for a thread that links online searchable databases for genealogy and military records. I have not found one. I think it would be nice if we had a pinned thread with links to websites that had available search tools, records, documents, and photos available for viewing or requesting information.
Ideally in this thread there would be NO posting other than the link with explanation. In order to make the thread easier to navigate and find the links, ideally, their would be no postings requesting information, saying thank you or nice find, etc.
Arlington National Cemetery Search Tool
Arlington National Cemetery's app, ANC Explorer, enables families, visitors and the public to locate gravesites, events or other points of interest throughout the cemetery; view front-and-back headstone photos and points of interest; and receive directions to these locations. The latest version also includes self-guided tours, easy access to general information, and provides the ability to save searched burial records to a mobile device.
US Department of Veterans Affairs Nationwide Gravesite Locator
Search for burial locations of veterans and their family members in VA National Cemeteries, state veterans cemeteries, various other military and Department of Interior cemeteries, and for veterans buried in private cemeteries when the grave is marked with a government grave marker. The Nationwide Gravesite Locator includes burial records from many sources. These sources provide varied data; some searches may contain less information than others. Information on veterans buried in private cemeteries was collected for the purpose of furnishing government grave markers, and we do not have information available for burials prior to 1997.
ABMC administers, operates and maintains 25 permanent American military cemeteries and 26 federal memorial, monuments and markers, which are located in 16 foreign countries, the U.S. Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and the British Dependency of Gibraltar; three of the memorials are located within the United States. These cemeteries and memorials, most of which commemorate the service and sacrifice of Americans who served in World War I and World II, are among the most beautiful and meticulously maintained shrines in the world.
The current status is that the website serves as a starting point for many people who want to know or research anything on the subject of the 83rd Infantry Division during World War 2. It is also a dedication to the men of the 83rd that gave their future for our freedom so that they may never be forgotten. I would like to ask everyone who has documents, whether they are reports, personal diaries, stories or pictures and is willing to share them to contact me at picture. Tips and or remarks can also be sent there.
