Max Block
Maybe we should "store" our discussion here?

Wow, Cecile goes high tech! Really appreciate you starting this project.

Mailed off the application for Max's military service record yesterday. Hope to receive a reply soon. BTW, has provided a wealth of information about happenings in New Orleans. There are a few articles in the Times-Picayune about Max's death along with the tributes paid to him and the other WWI veterans from New Orleans. Really grateful the Times-Picayune was so diligent about capturing the nitty gritty during that time.

You know the bad thing about the "project" is that you don't get a notification of a a reply or message...

Hello David,
I was tinkering on Ancestry just now and found an item which is both perplexing and fascinating. The item lists Max. R. Block, from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The source is: American Soldiers of World War I [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: Operations Inc, 2003. Original data: Haulsee, W.M., comp.. Soldiers of the Great War. Vol. I-III. Washington, D.C.: Soldiers Record, 1920. Do you think this may be our Max. Was Saul in Milwaukee by then?

Does it say what regiment? Max R Block is not that unusual a name.
Yes I do think that Saul was in Milwaukee by then. And as I recall the regiment that he "died" in trained in Chicago...
