Salt Lake City, Utah : Filmed by the Genealogical Society of Utah, 1995
11 microfilm reels ; 35 mm.


Microfilm of original forms at the Polish Roman Catholic Union of America, Chicago, Illinois.

Text in Polish; some English.

Includes indexes.

Many recruits for the Polish Army in France were enlisted during 1917- 1918 in several of the United States with large Polish populations. Before each group of records there is an alphabetical index which indicates the page number of the person's form. Form A, the Application of Volunteer, gives the date, recruiting station, name of the volunteer, their street and city address, civil status, number of children, citizenship status, age, weight, height, when they will be ready to depart, signature, the date they were sent to the Recruiting Center, and name of the officer or recruiting sergeant. The volumes with form C which contain more genealogical information do not appear to have been microfilmed.

For English translations of the forms see the lst microfilm reel--1993525.

It appears that most of the recruits were not United States citizens though they lived in the United States.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on FamilySearch.org include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.
