- A great free website is the World War I Gold Star Database – This database is being developed from the Gold Star files of World War I Alabama service people who died during the war or who had been awarded distinguished service recognition. The name “Gold Star” was derived from the gold stars awarded to mothers of service people who lost their lives. These files were created by the Alabama Department of Archives and History in the 1920s.
