BYU Students Help Find Families of MIA Soldiers

BYU Students Help Find Families of MIA Soldiers

In a powerful and life-impacting family history product, students at the BYU Center for Family History and Genealogy are working alongside the United States Army to locate families of missing servicemen so their remains can be brought home.

The students have been assigned 65 cases and have solved 48 of them so far. After the students come up with the information of potential relatives, the family members are contacted by the Army to see if they are willing to take a DNA test and help connect the army with the closest living relative of the fallen soldier.
