Military Service and Homestead Records

Lecture no. 4 from the course: Discovering Your Roots: An Introduction to Genealogy

Military Service and Homestead Records

Taught by Professor John Phillip Colletta | 32 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Hobby & Leisure Courses

Holding a document your ancestor once held is a thrilling experience; and this intimate link to your forebears is more readily accessible than ever. Train yourself to navigate through both military records (including service and pension records) and homestead files (which encompass 33 public domain states from 1863 to the 1970s).
