Sons & Daughters of WWII Veterans Launches!

As of January 1, 2011, the Sons and Daughters of World War II Veterans Genealogical Society is open for membership! This project has been a long time in the making and we here at the Admiral Nimitz Foundation are excited to see it launch! If you follow us on Facebook, Twitter or our blog, you’ve been hearing about this genealogical organization for quite some time. Setting Sons and Daughters of World War II Veterans apart from other WWII registries, this organization is a genealogical endeavor – allowing individuals to prove lineage from a WWII veteran of the US Armed Forces. It will follow the American Genealogical Standard of Proof, thus making membership both meaningful and helpful to future generations.

For more information and to join, visit

We’re just getting started, and are grateful for suggestions! Our website will soon be an “encrypted site”. NO personal information about members such as their birth/marriage dates are ever put on the web. We only list the service information of the Veteran and the name and membership categories of the Members. We do use PayPal right now for on-line payments, if people choose. Otherwise, you may mail a check or call us with a Visa or Mastercard. We are a program of the Admiral Nimitz Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization working to help a fabulous WWII museum, the National Museum of the Pacific War in Fredericksburg, TX. Come Visit!!
