U.S. World War I Mothers' Pilgrimage, 1930

 

In the late 1920s the War Department of the United States compiled a list of mothers and widows of deceased soldiers killed in World War I and offered to send them to their loved one's final resting place in Europe. This database contains the names those women who were entitled to make the pilgrimage, as shown by department records on 15 November 1929. Each record provides the name of widow or mother, city and state of residence, and relationship to the deceased. Additionally, information regarding the decedent's name, rank, unit, and cemetery is provided. In a few cases the woman's surname and decendent's surname can be different, most likely due to an error in spelling in the original document. Providing information regarding nearly 11,000 mothers and widows, this database can be useful for  Ancestry. COM patrons seeking World War I veterans.
