State of Arizona
Military Records Research

United states military heritage in Arizona began with the organization of the colonial militia early in the seventeenth century mainly to fight against assaults from native inhabitants. The applications and value of Arizona military records in genealogical research for ancestors that were veterans are apparent but Arizona military records can also be beneficial to researchers whose primary ancestors weren't soldiers in any war. Because of the quantity of genealogical information covered in a number of Arizona military pension records they ought to never be overlooked during the research process.

Arizona had several frontier military posts. Many of those records, as well as other government records, can be found at the Arizona Historical Society. Quartermaster records regarding equipment, construction, and supplies for military posts in Arizona can also be found at the Arizona Historical Society. The card catalog contains files regarding their microfilmed holdings. Society members may pay a small amount to use the supply copies and card catalog, as needed. The Arizona State Adjutant General's Office holds military records for the state. The FHL has the WWI Draft Registration Cards for 1917 and 1918 on microfilm, as well as one roll each of the NARA microfilm for the Civil War United Army Volunteers (M532) and the Confederate Soldiers (M318).
