German Enemy Aliens (German Genealogy Website)
In 1917 the US declared war on Germany. In 1917 New York State conducted a "Military Census and Inventory." 
This special census was taken in May, all persons, male & female who were between the age of 16 & 50 years of age. 
Approximately 5,600,000 men and women completed the form.

There was a separate form for males and females and there were about 80 questions on each form.

The names and addresses of all German males from New York City who were not citizens 
were printed in a series of articles in "The Herald." 
The list was published between December 4, 1917 and December 9, 1917. 

The GGG has obtained a copy of this list and has created a searchable database of the names and address. 
The database also notes which persons have submitted their first papers to become a citizen. 

There are over 26,000 names in the database.
