Tracing Your Civil War Ancestors Magazine


Family Chronicle, The How To Genealogy Magazine, has just introduced a special edition. It is called Tracing Your Civil War Ancestors.

“If you’re researching your family history and it involves an ancestor that fought in the Civil War, this is for you! Written by noted author David A. Norris (Life During the Civil War), Tracing Your Civil War Ancestors takes an in-depth look at the records and resources available to the Civil War genealogist. From Pension Records and Veterans’ Organizations, to Photography and Maps (and everything in between), Tracing Your Civil War Ancestors will be an invaluable resource to even the most seasoned genealogist!”

This magazine has 84-pages, magazine format, and a hi-gloss cover. It will be available on January 1, 2011, but they are taking preorders NOW! It is only $9.95 (plus $4.50 for shipping/handling).

Some of the topics this magazine may cover are:
  • Civil War records: What you might find and why they were created
  • The Branches of the Armies-Infantry, Cavalry, Artillery: What sort of records are available for your ancestors!
  • National Archives: Compiled Military Service Files:Basic source on every Civil War soldier — how to order them or access them; what's in them; how to interpret them.
  • Hospital and Medical Records:As many as two thirds of Civil War deaths were from disease rather than battle, and nearly every soldier spent some time in the hospital or on sick furlough.
  • Civilians in the War!:How to look up non-military relatives and how they lived during the war years.
  • “Miscellaneous” Soldiers:Staff officers, engineers, emergency troops, militia, junior and senior reserves, commissary, quartermasters and medical officers. Where to look for these “hard-to-find” records!
  • Southern Claims Commission and Southern Pardons:High-ranking Confederates applied for pardons after the war, leaving more records we can read today.
  • Newspapers During the War!:Civil War-era newspapers can vastly enrich your family history.
  • Pension Records:Federal pension payments began during the war for disabled soldiers and war widows and orphans and can be a goldmine of genealogical information!
  • Veterans' Organizations:The largest organizations were the Union's Grand Army of the Republic and the South's United Confederate Veterans.
Other great magazines that Family Chronicle offers which can help you in your genealogical research are:

Tracing Your Irish Roots
The Journey Takers: Based on the story of one family, Leslie Albrecht Huber's new book, The Journey Takers, widens its focus to tell the dramatic story of one of the most influential groups of people in US history —the nineteenth-century European immigrant.
