    Seeking list of sailors named Robinson


      I'm trying to identify the father of someone. He was in the Navy in 1935 and died in 1935 while currently active with the last name was Robinson.  Is there a way to get a list of all persons with surname Robinson who were serving in the Navy 1935 who also died in 1935? How can I find this?

          Dear Mr. Robinson,


          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!


          We are unaware of a listing of all Naval personnel who served in 1935 with the last name Robinson. We suggest that you request a copy of his Official Military Personnel File (OMPF). OMPFs and medical records of enlisted men of the U.S. Navy who were separated from the service after 1885 and prior to 1955 are located at NARA’s National Personnel Records Center (NPRC), (Military Personnel Records), 1 Archives Drive, St. Louis, MO 63138-1002. To request these records, please mail a completed GSA Standard Form 180 to NPRC and provide as much information as possible.


          Once you know what ship he served on, please contact the the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) via email at archives1reference@nara.gov for Logbooks of U.S. Navy Ships, 1801-1940 in the Records of the Bureau of Naval Personnel (Record Group 24).


          We hope this is helpful.
