RootsTech: Sources to Research Confederate Soldiers Online
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.
