The U.S. Veteran's Gravesites contains 7.6 million death records of people who served or are related to those who served, and are buried in various Veterans Affairs (VA) National Cemeteries, state veterans cemeteries, or other military cemeteries. The information is gathered from a variety of sources, so information in the transcripts will vary.
This collection is especially useful for family historians who do not know specifics about an ancestor, such as birth dates, in which branch of the military the ancestor served, or rank of a veteran. This vital records collection may be used as a launching point to lead to other collections detailing a person's life.
