World War I Project

The Oklahoma Genealogical Society plans to publish an index of veterans with an Oklahoma connection who served in World War I.  The Oklahoma Department of Veterans Affairs has a list of those who were killed in action or died from wounds.  However, there is no complete list of those who served.

Each year on Veterans Day we remember this brutal war by observing the signing of the armistice which ended the hostilities on the western front at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918.  We believe it is time to honor these brave Oklahomans.  If you have information about a WWI veteran, please fill out a form and return to OGS.

Copies of the form are available for printing by clicking here.  You can print the form and fill in by hand, or you can download the form and fill in using your computer, then print.  Send as many forms as you wish to:

Optionally, if you download the file and fill with your computer, you can then save the file, save as using the veteran’s name.pdf and send that file as an email attachment to webmaster@okgensoc.org.

Please contact OGS if you would be willing to help by doing research in county histories, cemetery books, newspaper obituaries, or any other source that you may know of.
