Ancestory.com Project Completed

Since Aug 2015 I have been working on a genealogy project for C123rd on Ancestry.com.

I have put the names of the 862 Marines and 161 Navy Corpsman who came and went in C Company during WWII into a tree at Ancestry.com.

If I could find their parents I added them and same for their spouses. About half of the men I could not find out more about. As I went along what struck me was how many were 1st generation Americans. 7 were even immigrants themselves of which 5 were born in Canada and 2 in Italy.

Of the ones whose parents I could find out more about, 120 of the Marines and Corpsmen were first generation Americans with their parents having been born in the following 33 countries.

Armenia

Austria

Bohemia

Canada

Croatia

Czechoslovakia

Denmark

England
