Brooklyn Naval Hospital Register of Armed Forces personnel whose remains were brought from Europe, 1918 to 1922

This database  is an index to a register of armed forces personnel whose remains were brought to the Brooklyn Navy Yard hospital from Europe.  It gives the date of death, the cause of death, and identifies the next of kin.
There is additional information in the register stating to where the remains and personal effects where shipped, oftentimes to a funeral home; and, possibly (as not all entries were the same), what ship the person was on, the date the injury occurred if different from the date of death, and when the body or person came to the Navy Yard.

These records can be viewed onsite, by appointment, and scans can be requested for a fee. When contacting the National Archives, please provide the Name, Date and Page Number.

Records Search: Brooklyn Naval Hospital

Please note that the Surname (e.g. Last Name) is a required entry field. But since exact spellings are not always known, to aid your search we offer three different ways to specify Surnames...

  1. Exact Match ("is exactly") - This is the default surname search method.
  2. Soundex ("sounds like") - This option enables you to specify a surname spelling it out as best you can, and it will return results that "sound" similar to what you spelled out.
  3. Wild Card - With this option you can replace part of the surname with a * to match any number of letters, or _ to match a single letter. So for example, Sch* will return all names starting with Sch. Similarly, Schl_tz might return results such as Schlitz or Schlotz. 

NOTE: The wild card option applies ONLY to the surname. You can just enter the fist few letters of a First Name; the search automatically adds a wild card to the end of the First Name.

For whichever of the above surname search options you would like to use, simply select the appropriate radio button option below the input field on the form. Although the additional form fields are optional, providing as much information as you can helps narrow your search. The more specific your search, the less time you need spend scrolling through search results!
