Civil War Genealogy Search Basics


Civil War Genealogy Search Basics

Have you ever wondered if your ancestors served or fought in the Civil War? I had never thought about that until I was searching for ancestors. I had found several members of my grandfather’s family had fought in this war. There were some on my father’s side of the family who had as well.

Not only will you find which side they fought for, you could find their muster roll cards, pensions applications for this American war, and which battles they fought in. There is more you will be able to find with the sites I have used finding more about these family members that brought a whole new meaning to my family history and the shaping of the United States.
