WW2 Casualties Database and Military Unit Records

As a professional researcher and World War II historian, Bill Beigel provides research services to genealogists, historians, authors, veterans, community and family members, and others who are looking for information found in WW2 military unit records. Unit records are useful in piecing together stories about a unit or group, as well as about individuals who served in them.

Bill Beigel researches veterans who served and survived the war, as well as those who were WW2 casualties.

Click the links below to search Bill Beigel’s WW2 casualties database by name, or to access a listing of units for each branch of service. Through these links, you may submit a research inquiry for an individual’s military service history (by name or unit), or submit a research request for military unit records from World War II.

There is no cost to submit a research request and discuss your project with Bill Beigel and you do not need to be a relative to initiate a research request for WW2 military records or casualty files.
