13 Military Certificates Added Since January 2011

Did you know that ISGS has Military Certificates database online that lists the certificates that we have issued?  The certificates are issued as part of the Military Certificate project that honors Illinois soldiers. 

The database lists the soldier’s name along with their unit, county, and the ISGS Military Certificate number.  This searchable database is available to anyone under the Free Databases section of the ISGS Website.

Additionally, back in June we created a questionnaire regarding our certificate projects.  If you haven’t already completed the Certificate Projects Questionnaire, please take a few minutes to do so.  We are very interested in your feedback.

Remember, the Military Certificates database is updated as certificates are issued, so be sure to check back regularly.  If you would like to apply for a certificate, refer to the Military Certificates project page for additional information, conflicts covered, and application form.

Do you have a connection to any of the soldiers listed here or in the database?  If so, write a comment to this post.  We’d love to hear your story!
