1917 MILITARY CENSUS

During the winter months of 2003, the Town of Palmyra began remodeling two rooms in the Town Hall to contain records that needed to be retained. (The remodeling expenses were covered by a grant.) They are called the Archives rooms.
During the settling of these rooms, in April of 2003,
almost exactly 86 years after it was created, the 1917 United States Military
Census for Palmyra was found, rolled up in a box. The original document is more
than 20 pages long, in very good condition, and handwritten. The Town Clerk's
office decided to transcribe the document and make it available to the public
for research and genealogy purposes.
