What Do I Do Next?[edit | edit source]

I Found the Person I Was Looking For, What Now?[edit | edit source]

  • The index contains only basic identifying information for a person; the original record therefore may contain more information not found in the index
  • Use the name, place of residence and birth date to obtain their military file from the National Archives
  • Use the estimated age to calculate a birth date
  • Use the soldier's age and residence to find his family in census, church, and land records

I Can’t Find the Person I’m Looking For, What Now?[edit | edit source]

  • Indexes and transcriptions may not include all the data found in the original records
  • If your ancestor does not have a common name, collect entries for every person who has the same surname. This list can help you find possible relatives
  • If you cannot locate your ancestor in the locality in which you believe they lived, then try searching records of a nearby town or county
  • Try different spellings of your ancestor’s name
  • Remember that sometimes individuals went by nicknames or alternated between using first and middle names
