I am looking for information about my family. The last known is my grandfather, A. G. Haynes in Johnson County, Burleson Texas. He was born in 1899. I have found nothing in the 1940 archives.
Hi James, have you checked Familysearch.org? It's a free service after registration. There is an AG Haynes listed in the 1940 census, wife Bessie, children Martha and Dorothy, living in Johnson County, TX. The 1930 census has an Alex G Haynes, wife Bessie, also in Johnson County, TX. And there was a Haynes family (with a 12 year old Alexander G…
Do you know if there are records for ships leaving NY in 1912, to Europe (likely Bremen, Germany)? I'm looking for information on my grandmother's return trip to Europe (Poland) in 1912. Thank you,
HI, I have a follow-up question. In general, was any type of documentation needed for travel outside of the US at that time? In 1912/1913, my grandmother was not a US citizen. And not a Polish citizen either; Galicia was part of the Austrian Empire. So what, if any, type of paperwork might she have had, to show where she lived? Thank you
How did one obtain an "Intent to become a US citizen" in 1871 in New York City? If you had to fill out an application, are those applications available? And what about after you were a citizen, were there other papers to fill out before you could receive your US citizenship?
HI, is it possible to search for military records for the Austrian army from the late 1800s/early 1900s (prior to WWI)? I was recently told that my grandfather (born in Witkowice, Poland [Galicia] around 1882) served in the Austrian army prior to immigrating to the US (he arrived here 1907 at the age of 25). From what I've been able to read so… Show more
Hi Jason, I just wanted to provide follow-up on your suggestion. I did contact the Austrian State Archives regarding military records for those serving in the Austrian army in the early 1900s. Per the Archives, after the fall of the Habsburg monarchy in 1918, military records for persons (born 1850 to 1900) from areas outside the borders of modern…

I am seeking where to find information on PFC Blasco Buscemi who served in the US ARMY during WWII. He was born on 8/15/1922 and died on 10/26/1944. We know he was in North Africa in July of 1944 and he died in France. The Major General was Edward F Witsell. He was awarded a Purple Heart and Silver Star. I appreciate any help.
I've spent hours online, and I still can't figure out how to track down my grandfather's/great-grandmother's Polish passport. They emigrated from Poland in 1922. I found their ship manifest on the Ellis Island website. I have my grandfather's Certificate of Naturalization, and I just requested his other naturalization documents from the… Show more

Hi Roger, I found a publication online that lists various abbreviations used in the military. Several of those you listed above were defined (eg, VSM, Vietnam Service Medal; BSM, Bronze Star Medal). The link is: https://fas.org/irp/doddir/army/ar310-50.pdf. As far as citations for any awards, if the DD-214 is the same format as those from WWII,…
