Do you have a Civil War soldier who fought? Lucky you! A Civil War pension file is one of the most informational records we can obtain about our ancestor, but we need to take the time to dissect this one record. Why were they created?

Family oral histories, digital phasing, DNA testing of many extended family members and analysis of xDNA inheritance patterns were needed to find the real source of that missing DNA. It was from Donaghadee, Ireland rather than Prussia.
