The American Revolutionary War was a major historical event which impacted many colonial families. It is hard to imagine that any family was left unaffected. Many families were divided, with multiple factors leading to which side they eventually chose to pledge their loyalty.
This course discusses the various types of records created by military service, such as service records, muster rolls, pension records, and draft registration. Records of conflicts of the United States and colonial America from the early colonial wars of the seventeenth century to the Second World War are included.
There are four courses covering the colonial period of the Eastern United States, focusing on the original Thirteen Colonies. These are valuable resources for anyone researching in this region and timeframe.
Each month, The International Institute for Genealogical Studies hosts several virtual meetings, giving the students the ability to ask questions about the courses or the research that they are working on
