Alphabetical GRAVE REGISTRATION information
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

The National Archives has a separate list of Union soldiers who were buried at the United States Soldiers' Home in the period 1861 through 1918. Other separate lists name Union soldiers buried in national cemeteries, 1861 to 1865, with a few as late as  1886. These are arranged by name of cemetery, by military organization, and, for certain states, by name of the soldier. The name indexes are available for Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Wisconsin.

World War II Draft Registration Cards 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

A draft administered by the Selective Service System was re-inaugurated during World War II. Until recently, the registration cards for this war were stored in federal records  centers and were not generally accessible, but some National Archives regional archives are now processing them  and making them ready for examination. For example, the National Archives regional archives (Great Lakes region) at Chicago already has processed and made available the cards for Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin. Inquiries should be made at the regional archives nearest the place where registration occurred.  Other Selective Service System documents of a
 local or regional nature, dating from 1940, may be found in some National Archives regional archives  and sometimes fragments can be found among the holdings of state archives. Included in some of these holdings are lists of names of individuals who were sent to conscientious objectors' work camps in lieu of military service .  Wisconsin M559
Enumeration of Civil War Veterans, 1885; 1895; 1905
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

Special state censuses were taken using returns from county clerks listing veterans residing in Wisconsin during
 each of the three years shown above. Included are name, rank, and post office. Also included is name of unit or vessel; arranged alphabetically by county and thereunder by local military unit. The 1905 enumeration arranged the names alphabetically by Wisconsin military unit; organizations of other states; United States regular army; "colored" organizations; sailors; marines. These censuses are available in published volumes.
