Learn Those Civil War Ancestors of Yours

From the Nov. 18th Picket News (Md).  "Antietam National Battlefield Host Genealogy Specialist..."

On Nov. 16th, John Deeben, geneaology specialist at the National Archives and Records Administration in Washington, DC, discussed army service in the Civil War with an overview of what's available and how to go about researching your ancestors who fought in the war.

There were two presentations, one at 11 Am and the other at 2 PM at the Antietam National Battlefield Visitor Center.

His discussion covered both Union and Confederate veterans.

Nice to know there is information and how to go about finding and using it.
