Total records = 1,175.

1,177 soldiers and sailors aboard the U.S.S. Arizona lost their lives on Dec 7, 1941, the day the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. The Arizona sunk in less than 9 minutes taking most of the crew with it. Most the casualties came from the blast resulting from the 1,760 pound armor piercing bomb that slammed through the deck and igniting the ammunition magazine. In the months following the attack, efforts were made to recover the bodies, but much of the efforts were in vain. Approximately 900 bodies remain at rest with the ship. To date, I have not been able to determine which bodies were recovered, nor have been able to account for the two missing names.

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.
