Military History Seminar: Family History Research War of 1812 and the Civil War (GS 3)
records generate from three different kinds of status: pre-service, actual service, and post-service. Basically these records fall into three categories: draft or selective service records, service records, and benefit records. This course reviews the different kinds of records that apply to each status in relation to a particular conflict. Draft records, military service records, pension files, rosters and militia records are discussed in detail. You will learn what information is in these records, how the information was obtained, where the records are located and how to access them. OHS holdings will be highlighted with examples of original records available in the Archives/Library. In commemoration of the upcoming 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 and the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, special emphasis will be placed on these records
