US National Cemetery Interment Control Forms

Arlington National Cemetery

While doing some research on one of my three great aunt's husbands this afternoon, I ran across a set of military records I have not seen before (now there is a shocker). If you had someone who was buried in any of the "US National Cemeteries" between 1928-1962, they now have the images from the US National Cemetery Interment Control Forms at Ancestry. These forms are a gold mine of family information. You must have an Ancestry sub or access to the Ancestry Library collection to access it. The link is Good hunting de Larry Van Horn

Oh yes, this is my great aunt Marguerite Lillian Van Horn-Black-Warner-Lamb I was researching. She divorced the first two. She was the daughter of Dr. William Law Van Horn and Mattie Parry Mallory. She was born 8 Jan 1882 in Columbia, Caldwell Parish, Louisiana, and died 20 Oct 1982 in Pinellas County, Florida.Her Find A Grave Memorial number is 21129411.
