Researching Your Civil War Ancestor
Experienced researcher David Connon shares strategies for tracking down your Civil War ancestor, North or South. Time permitting, audience members could share their research, and he could suggest options. Connon is descended from two Union veterans. He documented 76 Iowa residents who served the Confederacy.
