Recently he posted a link via Facebook, to his NEHGS lecture titled, "Civil War Pension Research: Union Soldiers," and I immediately asked him if I could copy it to my blog. Without hesitation, he gave me permission to post his talk on researching your Union Civil War Ancestor. There are 26 slides ranging from 16 seconds to 1.39 seconds, each covering a type of document possibly found in the pension file. The pension research lecture starts up immediately and the nice thing about it is, you can start and stop, replay as many times as you like. This makes for easy note taking.
Don't miss viewing slides #12 and 16, covering Forms 3-447 and 3-389.
