The Thirteenth United States Census records for Kings County, New York City, Borough of Brooklyn, New York, for 1910. The census divides the population by sex, race, age, marital status, number of children, occupation, literacy, whether they owned or rented, farm or house, if they were a Civil War veteran, whether they were blind, deaf or dumb, the place of birth and mother tongue of foreign-born persons and their parents. If foreign born, the person was required to provide the year they immigrated, whether they were naturalized and if they were able to speak English.

A notable resident listed in this record is William Otto Grupp (1901-1988). This is the first census in which William Otto Grupp appears. Born on April 1, 1901 in Brooklyn, New York, Grupp was a first-generation German-American. He enlisted in the United States Navy on July 5, 1918, at the age of eighteen. He served at several locations, including the USS Indiana. After his service, Grupp married Katherine Riebling, with whom he had two daughters. Grupp died on November 17, 1988, and is buried in the Bushnell National Cemetery in Bushnell, Florida.

In 2017, the University of Central Florida was one of three universities selected to launch the National Cemetery Administration’s Veterans Legacy Program. The program engaged a team of scholars to make the life stories of veterans buried in the Florida National Cemetery available to the public. The project engages UCF students in research and writing and fosters collaboration between students, faculty and local Central Florida schools to produce interactive curriculum for k-12 students. The corresponding website exhibit uses RICHES Mosaic Interface to create a digital archive of related data. The public can use the project-developed augmented-reality app at more than 100 gravesites at the Florida National Cemetery, where they can access the UCF student-authored biographies of veterans.
