Researching Your Civil War Ancestors
October 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
As the NJSL continues to celebrate National Family History month, please join us for Researching Your Civil War Ancestors. Jon Bozard, reference assistant at the New Jersey State Archives, will cover the military records that are available at the Archives, and talk about what information you can and cannot expect to find there. He will also talk about records available at the National Archives in Washington DC, pension files and military service files, as well as show examples of some of the types of records you can find. There will also be information presented on other sites where there might be information of use to researchers.
