Thank you to Katherine Ludwig from the David Library of the American Revolution for a wonderful presentation on on researching Revolutionary War ancestry. The David Library located in Washington Crossing has a treasure trove of information relating to the time period in American History from 1750-1800 including many primary source records on microfilm. She covered a host of topics including resources available both at the library and available freely online through sites such as Fold3, how to read Pension and Service records, and unique information about the war. I encourage you to reach out to Katherine at the David Library via email, firstname.lastname@example.org, or via phone 215-493-6776 ext. 102 for further information on the library’s collections.
Also, do not forget to come check out all of our genealogy resources for New Jersey ancestry, including collections related to the Revolutionary War. A video recording of the presentation will be made available for online viewing so please check back in the near future.
