I can’t find my biographical information online. What happened?

If your information is not available online, it most likely means that the collection has not yet been processed and incorporated into the Veterans History Project (VHP) archive. Please allow 12 to 18 months from the time of submission for the biographical information (service summary) to appear online. If more than 18 months have passed, please contact VHP at vohp@loc.gov or 888-371-5848, and provide details about who conducted the interview, when it was recorded, and when it was submitted.

Please note: If you participated as part of a volunteer organization, e.g., school, university, DAR, VFW, congressional office etc., please check with them first to find out if and when your collection was submitted to VHP. We will not be able to provide you with the status of your collection, or process the collection, until we receive your materials from that organization.
