I’m Teaching a Civil War Research Class!

I thought I would use the blog to spread the news that I am teaching a non-credit class in researching your Mississippi Civil War ancestor at Millsaps College as part of their Community Enrichment Series. The class will meet at Millsaps on Thursday nights from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m., and will run from January 29 – February 19, 2015.

The class I am teaching will cover the basics on researching the military service of Mississippians who served in the Union or Confederate armies during the Civil War. Among the topics to be covered will be locating and understanding Civil War service records, pensions, and burial information. The class will also discuss how to research a relative’s Civil War unit to understand what battles they might have participated in.

The cost of the class is $75.00, and you can register online at: http://www.millsaps.edu/conted.

 

It will be a great class, and I hope to see you there!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 35,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 13 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
