Andover, Massachusetts in the World War by

Besides being a synopsis of what happened in the town for the war
effort, there is a short bio for most of the men & women including what
units they served in, sometimes date & place of birth or current address,
even if they were serving in a foreign military.  I used info from this
book and contacted the MA State Guard and got part of the military

ancestor before trying to seach through the book you'll find the names
here on my site. [online book - downloadable]
