Legacy QuickGuide: Researching War of 1812 Ancestors by Thomas MacEntee - 2.95
The War of 1812, often called America’s Second Revolution, left behind a valuable set of records that have proven valuable for genealogical research. Many of these records like pension files can help solve the “pre-1850 census” issues when only the head of household was named in the US federal census.
The Researching War of 1812 Ancestors Legacy QuickGuide™ contains valuable information so you can understand the history of the War of 1812 and the records created about the veterans who fought in the conflict. You’ll learn how to devise a Veteran Identification Strategy as well as what records exist both online, on microfilm and in print. Records covered include service records, bounty land records, pension files, casualty records, records for African-American and Native American veterans and more.
In addition, this guide contains over 100 links to research resources; some are obscure, hard-to-find and many are free! While the emphasis is on United States-based research, several Canada and British resources are included. This handy 6-page PDF guide can be used on your computer or mobile device for anytime access.
