Search tips

First names were not always spelled out in full. Occasionally, only first initials were included. If searching by your ancestor’s full first name (with variants) is not yielding expected results, try searching by the first letter of your ancestor’s first name instead.

Use the optional keyword field to search by force, regiment, or conflict.
