On April 6, 1917 President Woodrow Wilson asked Congress to declare war on Germany ending our formal neutrality, and to mobilize the resources of the United States to fight in this global conflict. Numerous genealogical records exist that share the feelings, attitudes, and the reactions by our government by searching for our ancestors in this war.
