Database Search

You are in the database section of the website.

Select a record category from RECORDS above. When you have selected a category, you will see search options for that category above the record list. 

Most fields require at least three characters. When you submit your query, the search engine will return all records that contain your search term.

Note that when searching for an aircraft serial number, you must enter the full serial number without the leading "4" and without a dash in the Aircraft SN search field. For example, you would enter 42-37772 as 237772.

The Personnel name field searches both last and first names, so if you enter the search term, "Russ", the search engine will return both Russell Abel and James Russell.

You narrow the search by entering more characters into the search field. For example, "Russ" returns many hits. "Russell" returns fewer hits. The same principle applies to all queries.

The POW and KIA categories are list only and are not searchable.

COMMENTS & NOTES

MEMO 1:

Mike & Jan,
I just had a call from George Berry, an original of the 100th from the start in the US and until the end of the war (he was transferred to the 97th to be sent home) and stayed in the AF.  He was an armorer in the 349th and he never heard about the Association / Foundation until recently.  I've encouraged him to attend the reunion.  I bet he's got some good stories.  He has a picture of the entire 100th taken at Wendover Field, UT in November 1942 - it's about 3 1/2 ft long and has all the personnel with 2 B17s behind, one facing the camera and one facing right.  Do you have a copy of it Mike?  George is going to make a copy for me to bring to the reunion in case he can't make it.  He's got the web address, but maybe you could send him a registration form by email Jan.  He's a very talkative guy and knew all the commanders etc throughout the war.  He was there when the plane with the Red Cross girls didn't make it off the runway and was surprised that the story has been told.  Both of you feel free to contact him and encourage him to come to the reunion.  Let's give him a 1 year free membership to encourage him - we may get some new material from him.
