What Do I Do Next?

Using the Information

  • Use the estimated age to calculate a birth date.
  • Use the soldier's age and location of the military unit to find his family in census, church, and land records.
  • Use the county code and the certificate number to obtain a copy of the original death certificate from the county.

Tips to Keep in Mind

  • When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct.
  • Titles may be clues to property ownership, occupations, rank, or status within the community.
  • Continue to search the index and records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives who may have served in the same unit or a nearby unit.
  • You may need to search for both their Indian name and their English name.
  • Be aware that, as with any index, transcription errors may occur.

Unable to Find your Ancestor?

  • Check for variant spellings of the names.
  • Look for an index. There are often indexes at the beginning of each volume. In addition local genealogical and historical societies often have indexes to local records.
  • Search the records of nearby localities (or military unties, counties, parishes, etc.).
