Veterans of World War II
with family names other than Olmstead, Olmsted, or Omstead

This is an attempt to identify all of the Olmste(a)ds, direct descendants of Olmste(a)ds, or their spouses that served in the military during World War II (1940-1947). If you know of a family member that should be listed here, please email us the relevant information.

This page will include those of other family names than Olmstead, Olmsted, or Omstead.

To access their genealogical record on WikiTree, add the ID to URL, i.e., www.wikitree.com/wiki/(add wikitree ID here). The WikiTree ID is the persons last name at birth followed by a hyphen and a number. If a Wiki profile has not yet been created, just WT will appear in the field in the chart below. You are welcome to edit existing Wiki profiles or add new ones. Wiki profiles often contain photos and biographical information.

Find-a-Grave Memorials often include photos of cemetery monuments, personal photos, obituaries, and other information about an individual (including links to family members also on FAG) in addition to the cemetery name and location. To access a memorial on, write down the number and then on the right side of the Find-a-Grave home page click on “Search 165 Million Graves” and then insert the number in the field marked “Memorial #” leaving the other fields blank, and hit “search.” Start by clicking this link to Find-a-Grave.  In a few instances there will be two FAG numbers when a man was KIA or MIA and a memorial was created for burial or on a “Wall of Honor” and an American overseas cemetery and the family also placed a memorial in a local cemetery. If we have not yet found a FAG for an individual, just the # will appear in the chart below.
