FamilySearch.org added millions of new records this week of both Confederate and Union soldiers who served in the American Civil War.
Those include veterans applications for military headstones, records of headstones for deceased Union veterans, Confederate POW records, registers of homes for disabled soldiers, service records and more.
Also newly added are notarial records from Canada, church records and civil registrations from Mexico, and a variety of records from England.
Youll find a chart here listing the new collections and linking to the individual databases. Note that not all of the collections are searchable. Indexes havent been completed for some, such as U.S., Records of Confederate Prisoners of War, 18611865. In that case, youll need to browse collections by date or place.
