Cemetery History

At 40 1/2 acres in extent, St. Mihiel American Cemetery sits almost at the center of the salient where the majority of its war dead gave their lives.

The cemetery was first established as a temporary cemetery by the American Graves Registration Service following the offensive in 1918. After the war, the other temporary cemeteries in the area were discontinued and the military dead of the region whose next-of-kin requested burial overseas were moved to St. Mihiel American Cemetery for permanent interment.

It is the third largest of eight permanent WWI American military cemetery memorials in Europe. Post-war administration of the cemetery was passed to American Battle Monuments Commission in 1934. The Commission went on to establish the landscaped grounds, the chapel memorial, and other permanent buildings.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
