World War II Research and Writing Center
For the most current World War II research information, please visit my main website, the The World War II Research and Writing Center This site, launched on 13 October 2015, brings together a collection of resources to help people research and write the stories of U.S. soldiers during World War II. We accomplish this through toolboxes, forms and checklists, articles, newsletters, a Research Collective, webinars, courses, and books. Sign-up for my WWII newsletter here.

"Jennifer Holik's Stories From the World War II Battlefield is a remarkable achievement. The growing number of people dedicated to learning of an ancestor's World War II military service cannot afford to miss it! It provides a clear and focused explanation of the sometimes baffling archival resources available to the public related to wartime service. I've been studying World War II for more than three decades, and I still learned plenty of new research techniques from Jennifer's book." --- Joseph Balkoski, author of Omaha Beach and Beyond the Beachhead
"Well written, well organized and authoritative, Stories from the World War II Battlefield is an outstanding how-to guide for World War II genealogical research. Quite simply, this is the best single resource for tracing the World War II service of individual servicemen and women. I highly recommend it." --- John C. McManus, Ph.D., Curator's Professor of History, Missouri S&T, Author of The Dead and Those About to Die, D-Day: The Big Red One at Omaha Beach.
