Today at RootsTech I’ll be teaching about Confederate soldiers and how to learn about them with online collections and articles.
The online syllabus with links to collections is available here:
After the class today, I will also share the slides from the presentation.
I started researching my Confederate soldiers when I taught my children about Memorial Day last year. My 7-year-old son wanted to learn about members of our family who died while serving in the military. I needed to discover more about our Confederate relatives before I was ready to teach him about that part of our heritage. I’ll be sharing what I discovered and what I taught him today in the class.
Here is a link to the presentation slides in PDF form for your reference:
Thank you, everyone who came and discussed Confederate soldier research with me. It was a fascinating time and I learned from all of your stories.
