And our new project is… U.S., Navy Casualties Books, 1776-1945

Earlier today we released the U.S., Navy Casualties Books, 1776-1945.  This collection is a series of books detailing the deaths of  officers who died while serving in the U.S. Navy.   The records are all typed and range from 1 name to 20+ names on a page.  There are a few tricky instructions, especially regarding keying the Death Place so make sure to read over the project instructions and field helps.


Happy keying!

when posting mother’s name and it is listed as Mrs John Doe, do we put John Doe as the mother or Mrs John Doe?

If the mother is listed as Mrs John Smith then you would not enter anything for the mother’s name.

It’s Pretty amazing at how some of these sailors met their demise. There were a lot of drownings; didn’t they teach sailors how to swim? A lot of influenza/pneumonia deaths. One died while playing baseball (I haven’t figured out how one does that). Finally, one sailor drowned while trying to desert. Now that’s ironic.
