"Helpful hints":Go to this site and click on the box marked NAIL Standard Search. This will take you to a site called NAIL Standard Search Form. Scroll down until you come to two search boxes. Type Lincoln in the first and Kansas in the second. Scroll down further and push on the button, "Display Results." Hopefully this will take you to the results page! (Sometimes the system disconnects you here. You can also click on the "Submit Search" button although this will add an extra step to the search.)

What you'll get is a listing of titles of documents, films, recordings, etc. held by the National Archives containing the words, Lincoln and Kansas in them. The first 65 or so are an index of individuals living in Lincoln County, Kansas, during World War I, usually born in central Europe who had to register and sign an affadavit of allegiance. At about number 66 in the list you will come upon the above book title. Click on display FULL text.

The book for Kansas has been scanned as an image of the original. Click on "Links to Digital Pages" and you'll come upon the online table of contents to the online book. THERE IS A MAJOR PROBLEM WITH THIS SCANNED BOOK! The Army serial numbers of all deceased personnel are listed along with the above information. We couldn't read all the numbers as the scanned image is too small and very fuzzy. This is why we left the service numbers off the above list. We didn't want to mislead any of you with our readings of the numbers. At times we were also unsure of the spelling of names. If we have erred in spelling a name please let us know.

According to the web page the contact agency for this scanned book is: Modern Military Records (NWCTM), National Archives at College Park, 8601 Adelphi Road, College Park, MD 20740-6001 PHONE: 301-713-7250 FAX: 301-713-7482

Searching the NAIL web site can be done in many different ways. You can limit your search to text only material. You can also go to a more advance search level which will allow you to narrow your search. Some other original documents have been loaded online including the afore-mentioned affadavits. It's a great site for finding out some of the resources available through the National Archives and Records Administration.
