Question:  I am looking for where my great-grandmother's cousin Walter Archer was buried overseas.  He was buried in France where he was killed in 1918.


Answer:  Online you can search the burials of American veterans from World War I and World War II.  I locate an entry for a Pvt. Walter S. Archer, with the 316th Engineer Regiment, 91st Division in the U.S. Army.  He is buried at Plot F, Row 15, Grave 33 at the Meuse-Argonne American Cemetery in Romagne, France.  You can request a photograph be taken of this monument for you and your family.  To search this database go online to
