Part Number: W8MILMAPS_

Price: $9.95
Militarymapshave some obvious value to thefamilyresearcher. If our person of interest was in amilitaryunit or fought in a battle we might want to understand the battle or locate his unit, knowing he was there at that time and place. However, even if our research subject was not in themilitary, we should consider the possibilities. Manymilitarymapsare large scale (show a lot of detail) and many show property owners. In the Civil War era it was common to navigate by referring to a location by the land owner’s name. Your ancestor’s house may have been identified on the battlefieldmapas a reference point, or served as a hospital. A farm may have been turned into a cemetery. Also rivers and fords tend to be annotated on thesemaps.

Part Number: WXFNDEVIMR_

Price: $9.95
With the ever expanding digital resources available today we can find evidence of kinship in military records often neglected. Records such as pensions, service records, medical records, and even pension payment records are increasingly available. However, our need to ensure that we conduct “reasonably exhaustive research” required by the Genealogical Proof Standard (GPS) will often times require research in original textual records. This webinar will focus on finding kinship information in both online and textual military records.

This was hosted by the Board for Certification of Genealogists, and was presented to a live webinar audience on September 20, 2016. 1 hour 36 minutes, plus 47 pages of handouts.
