Resources Outside the Wyoming State Archives
The RMOA is a regional catalog to archival collections in Wyoming, Colorado and New Mexico. This is a wonderful resource for finding primary sources, including those at the American Heritage Center at the University of Wyoming.
Military Service Records
The majority of the troops sent overseas during WWI were a part of the US military, and thus their service records are house at the National Archives. A fire during the 1970s destroyed some service records.
