    Seeking a personnel roster of 102nd Infantry Division

    George W. Famous Newbie

      I am looking for a personnel roster for the 102nd Infantry Division in France after Sept. 11, 1944. Where can I find that information?

          George,

           

          Have you tried any groups or unit associations? Most rosters from that Time period were destroyed according to the Army Disposition Schedule in I believe 1950. You may find rosters pertain to shipping and other hidden among the Morning reports most units are hit or miss.

            Dear Mr. Famous,

             

            Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

             

            Copies of most of the monthly rosters from November 1912 - 1943 & 1947 - 1959 and morning reports from November 1912 to 1959 for Army units are in the custody of the National Archives at St. Louis, MO. For access to these records, please contact the National Archives at St. Louis (RL-SL) via email at stl.archives@nara.gov. Rosters for units serving in World War II from 1944 - 1946 were destroyed in accordance with Army disposition authorities.

             

            Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RL-SL. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.

             

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

              George,

               

              I have been to St. Louis Archives and have copied most of the Morning After Reports for the 405th Regiment of the 102nd. I also have the full roster as written post war, 1946. Though many person records were destroyed, it seemed that many records were intact including the microfilm archives.

              My Facebook page has much information on the 102nd, as I have been researching their history for over twenty years. Feel free to have a look on that page for information.

              Here is a link:

              Alternately, you may reach out to me here, however, I only check in maybe once a week.

               

              Best of luck with your search.
