The release of the World War II Army Enlistment Records in AAD represented the first release of some 1.2 million records from the National Archives' records center that were digitized with the cooperation of the U.S. Army in the 1930s as part of an administrative system to record individuals' enlistment in the U.S. Army. The records are an important resource for genealogists who are tracing the family history of World War II era veterans.
The Office of the Adjutant General of the Army created the World War I and World War II Army Enlistment Records. The records are records of individuals who enlisted in the U.S. Army. The records are now part of the National Archives and Records Administration's (NARA) Archives II in Washington, DC. Records from the World War I Army Enlistment Records and records for World War II were transferred to the Archives Administrative Center in College Park, Maryland, in 1991. This action transformed an archival collection of some 100 million records to an electronic collection to provide a more efficient and accessible archival resource.
The factory presets are factory settings for a particular variation of the G-System. For example, if you only have one G-System, you would have one factory preset, and if you owned an option board, you would have another factory preset. When you change the factory preset, you are not changing the factory settings for any internal components of the G-System. For example, if you change the factory preset from G-System (default settings) to G-System (effect settings), the internal components will still function exactly as they did before with the default factory preset.
In 1996, NARA approached California State University (CSU) to support the creation of an electronic archive of the records of California's public school students. CSU agreed to create an electronic archive of California's high school students, known as the California Digital Archives High School (CDASH).
In January 2001, the National Archives and Records Administration's (NARA) Center for Electronic Records (CER) received a $400,000 grant from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation for an electronic archive of military records. The project, known as AAD (Archive of Electronic Records) was proposed to NARA's Center for Information Technology and to NARA's Records Management Division. The grant allowed NARA to develop a link to an existing electronic record from the National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) called the AAD. The grant also allowed CER to create a new online portal to enter information about the record. If a person has a relative with records at NPRC, AAD is a valuable tool to find the record. This tool will greatly benefit NARA's more than 14 million annual requestors.
NARA's Center for Electronic Records (NCER) manages the NPRC's online repository, which contains over 2.2 million records from the National Personnel Records Center, and provides full-text electronic access to them on the Internet. 827ec27edc
