FREE DATABASE U.S. Naval Deaths, World War I - Search U.S. Naval Deaths, World War I: "Although the United States Navy did not take part in many World War I battles, thousands of American sailors died fighting for their country during the war. This database collects from disparate sources the death records for over 7200 sailors who died between 1917 and 1919. Each record reveals the sailor's name, rank, branch of service, death date, and cause of death. Additionally, the sailor's enlistment address is given along with the nearest living relative. For those seeking ancestors who died in World War I, this can be an extremely illuminating database."
