    Are there muster rolls available for the doughboys of WWI?


      I have worked with muster rolls of Marines in WWII, but haven't found ones for WWI, Army infantry.

          Dear J Enders,


          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!


          The National Archives at St. Louis, MO retains copies of most of the monthly rosters from 1912-1943 for Army units. Please contact them for access to these records via email at stl.archives@nara.gov, or by mail at National Archives at St.Louis, ATTN: RL-SL, PO Box 38757, St. Louis, MO 63138.


          You will need to specify the organizational unit and date. NARA staff can then use an index to locate the microfilm reel or paper report for the given unit on a particular date. Upon request, we will provide digitized images on DVD of organizational records, each taken from a roll of microfilm created by the Department of the Air Force in the 1950s and 1960s. The original paper documents no longer exist. The response time for future requests may be six or more months, depending upon our available resources and the total volume of requests received.


          We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck on your research!
