Free Access to Fold3’s Civil War Collection (limited time)

by Fred Ray on April 9, 2018 · 1 comment

Business pressures and tax time have not left much for blogging, for which I apologize. Have some posts in the works, but until then here’s something from Fold3 that might interest readers.

For a very limited time (until April 15th) Fold3 has their entire Civil War collection available for free access (you do have to register). Record groups available include:

Popular Titles

Civil War “Widows’ Pensions” Files
Census – US Federal 1860
Civil War Service Records
Civil War Pensions Index
Pension Numerical Index

Confederate Records

Confederate Amnesty Papers
Confederate Casualty Reports
Confederate Citizens File
Confederate Navy Subject File
Confederate Service Records
Southern Claims Commission

And much more. If you want to do a quick check of your ancestor’s Compiled Service Record, now is the time.
