Lesson 7: Korean War Records


The Korean War began on 25 June 1950 along the Thirty-Eighth Parallel. An armistice was signed on 27 July 1953, but there were between 30,000 and 40,000 American soldiers who died during that conflict. There are many histories available concerning this war that you may want to read.

You will also find a few database collections with information to help in your research. The Korean War Casualties, 1950-1957, at MyHeritage.com contains transcribed records of U.S. Army officers and soldiers who died or were wounded in the Korean War. Ancestry.com has a collection titled WWI, WWII, and Korean War Casualty Listings that may provide details.
