Servicemen of Butler County Project
These indexes and reference volumes were created to support research of Butler County servicemen and women during World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War, which are all still under-represented in online genealogy due to privacy laws governing service records.
These indexes are drawn from local news coverage in the Butler Eagle. In-library, researchers can browse binders of the assembled articles, arranged in date publication order. Indexes are also available.
Using these linked indexes, researchers can find articles specific to one person's military service. News coverage can include draft notice, enlistment, training, letters home, photographs, promotions, report of injuries, and announcements of those Killed in Action.
