|Thanks Savez...I will check into the local library or historical society. I live in a pretty rural part of Indiana so I didn't really give much thought to researching at the local library. They don't advertise if they have any historical information or not so it just never came to mind to go there. But something like the Civil War should be documented somewhere in the archives there. So I will give it a shot and see what happens.
I had no idea on where to start looking when I started my family Civil War history research 3 yrs ago. I just jumped in on Ancestry.com and went from there to online regimental rosters/histories etc. I've been creating Microsoft Word sheets with ancestor service timelines for the war. Hyperlinking Brigade Cmdr battle reports to show what the ancestor went through during the battle. I'm just trying to rebuild the family history knowledge base from that era and preserve it for the future.
