During the wars involving the U.S. in the 18th and 19th centuries, your ancestor may have served in the Regular Forces, the Volunteer Troops or in a State Militia that had been federalized. This lecture will touch on how the military force, Congressional legislation, and other factors may have affected your ancestors’ eligibility for military benefits, and therefore, the records that may have been produced on your ancestor. We’ll examine the key U.S. federal military records that provide especially valuable genealogical information and look for clues in the records that may help to expand your research. This presentation will cover the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, and the Civil War.
