Was my Will Smith in the Civil War? (Program)
1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Use the information in your emailed invitation to meet via your telephone or device.
Presenter: Brian Rhinehart
Over 10% of the US population fought in the Civil War in the 1860’s. Using (mostly) free resources, learn some tips on how to determine if your ancestor was in the war, and how to differentiate among those common named soldiers.
Brian is a professional genealogist and speaker and is the owner of CivilWarRecords.com. He is a graduate of Boston University’s Certificate of Genealogy Research and the Genealogical Institute on Federal Records (GenFed) in Washington, D.C. A direct descendent of six Civil War soldiers, Brian specializes in research and record retrieval for Civil War and War of 1812 soldiers at the national Archives in Washington, D.C. and has retrieved military files for hundreds of clients there.
