Brian Rhinehart will be joining us on Zoom to present this talk.
I Have a Civil War Ancestor . . . Now What?
Civil War soldiers often left a rich genealogical paper trail. Many of these records are tucked away at the National Archives in Washington DC. Learn what records are available for your ancestors only at the National Archives, what records are online already, and how to access all of them. These records may unlock some of the family stories that have been forgotten over time, as well as break down a brick wall or two!
The virtual doors will open between noon and 12:30 p.m. and those of you who join online can chat with one another on Zoom before the meeting begins at 1:00 p.m.
