Program Description

Program Details

Topic: Civil War Special
Speakers: Brian Rhinehart

Each monthly Genealogy PLUS event will feature an hour-long presentation by an expert followed by a study session.

This month, join us for back-to-back Civil War presentations by Brian Rhinehart!

First, learn the resources available to help determine if your ancestor was in the Civil War, including techniques to help narrow down commonly named soldiers (such as William Smith) to know if he’s YOUR ancestor.

Then, learn about the rich genealogical paper trail left by Civil War soldiers. Records available at the National Archives as well as online records, and how to access them, will be shared.


We will be using Zoom. To receive the link to join a presentation, register using the form below.

Register separately for each presentation you would like to attend.
