Navy Unit Records Research

Please click on one of the unit names below to request research assistance in locating U.S. Naval records from World War II. This list is in development, so if you don’t see the unit or vessel you’re looking for, click on any unit name below and type in the correct unit/vessel name in the form page.

Expert researcher and WWII historian Bill Beigel will conduct a thorough search of deck logs, squadron after action reports, and other records, concerning units and individuals who served in the Navy in World War II. When compared to some other branches of service, records for naval flyers, as well as naval casualties, are often quite detailed and informative.

Your completed form will be sent via email to WW2 Researcher Bill Beigel, M.A., who will contact you with a quote or with additional questions about your research request.
