Need some help

on July 1, 2010

I am trying to find a resource online regarding the burial process of World War I soldiers in France so I can finish the life story of my Michael Kokoska and submit it for publication. I have Googled lots of search options and am not finding what I want. Has anyone come across a resource I can use?

I put in a request for a book through Interlibrary Loan called Soldier Dead so I will have that resource, but if I am able to find something sooner, that would be great. I’m feeling the momentum to get this finished.

Thanks!

  1. Have you looked at: After The Ruins: Restoring the Countryside of Northern France after the Great War, by: Hugh Clout
    Available through amazon, excerpt from google books on page 295: http://books.google.com/books?id=nSprHxTuXdAC&pg=PA295&dq=burial+process+of+World+War+I+soldiers+in+France&hl=en&ei=7MksTIKVKIX6lweJl93KCg&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=7&ved=0CEoQ6AEwBg

    Or maybe,

    or

    I found a lot of possible results using the search phrase “burial soldiers WWI France” in Google Books

    Good luck
