What is in This Collection?[edit | edit source]

This collection contains a military census of nurses for the year 1917 in Connecticut. The collection is part of Record Group 029, Records of the Census Military Department at the Connecticut State Library. Archival note:"Pages may appear to be missing, but this is not necessarily true because many pages were attached to other pages of the same name but in a different area within this same group of records. A general index for this census' codes is found in the first few images of each film."

I Found the Person I Was Looking For, What Now?[edit | edit source]

  • Use the person's name and place of birth to find a birth certificate which should list the names of the parents
  • Use the country of citizenship to lead you to immigration or naturalization records
  • Use the person’s age and residence to find the family in census, church, and land records
  • When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct
  • Continue to search the index and records to identify siblings and other relatives who may also have registered for the draft
  • Census, military service, military pension, immigration, naturalization, and land records can be very useful

I Can’t Find the Person I’m Looking For, What Now?[edit | edit source]

  • Look for variant spellings of the names. Pay special attention to how the name should have been pronounced and try variations on the pronunciation
  • Remember that sometimes individuals went by nicknames or alternated between using first and middle names, or even initials
  • Immigrant first names may be in their native language
  • Search the records of nearby localities
