We solve complex genealogy problems.


We are a mission driven group of genealogists, investigators and researchers dedicated to solving large scale, complex genealogy problems for the U.S. military. We have been contracted by the U.S. Department of Defense to identify and locate families of U.S. service members still missing from WWII and other past conflicts.



Our team of researchers conduct genealogy research to identify living relatives of unaccounted for U.S. service members. Our information is obtained through genealogical sources, public records, and information from the service member's personnel file.

There are over 81,000 missing U.S. soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines.



The U.S. Department of Defense personnel accounting community is a dedicated group of military and civilian personnel passionately committed to fulfilling the U.S. mission to provide the fullest possible accounting for our missing  personnel to their families and the nation.

Have you been contacted by one of our genealogists?

If you have been contacted by Lithic Genealogy Group, our research indicates you are related to a missing or previously unaccounted for U.S. service member. We will explain your connection to the service member and how you are related. Please contact us today or visit our Family Member Help Page for more information.
