Their official titles are Annual Report of the Adjutant-General of the State of New York for the Year ... : Registers of the [units numbers].

These rosters were digitized by the New York State Library. For a complete list of the documents the library has digitized see www.nysl.nysed.gov/ scandocs/

These are all Adobe Acrobat files and they can be very large. The largest is 80 MB. These have been 'read' so they can be searched using the Acrobat Search funtion. However, they have not been checked for spelling so there are many mis-spellings. you cannot see these mis-spellings because the text is under the page image so please be aware that just because you have searched for a word using the Acrobat search function, this will not take the place of reading.

Veteran's Oral History Project

Established by the Governor on Veterans' Day, 2000, the New York State Veteran Oral History Program involves professional military historians using the latest digital technology to preserve the story of New York's Veterans—in their own words—now and for all generations to come.

The program is concentrating on the state's sizable World War II Veteran community; however, we are also collecting the experiences of veterans of all periods and services.

Additional Resources

Our records are primarily related to the New York National Guard, therefore, we little or no information on federal installations and/or personnel who served in the US forces (Army, Navy, Marines, etc.).

There are additional resources listed with each of the units within the Unit History section of this website. You can also contact the local public library, historical society, city historian and county historian where the unit was raised.
