Online—all are welcome. Registration required.
The medical records in the U.S. National Archives (NARA) provide a rich but elusive source of genealogical information. NARA finding aids for medical records, which contain genealogical information, are not usually available. This session will provide information of interest to the Civil War genealogist. It will be presented with visual aids and examples of the kinds of genealogical information that are available.
