Military Records at Ancestry.com, by Esther Yu Sumner; 79 pg; Paperback; ISBN 978-1-59331-311-1; 2006; Item TP111
If your ancestors were American, chances are good that at least one of them was involved in an American war. And each of the more than forty wars and conflicts in which America was involved generated some kind of record. Though they can sometimes be complicated, military records are fantastic family history resources and, as you’d expect, Ancestry.com has an extensive collection of them.
Military Records at Ancestry.com is your guide to this collection. Esther Yu Sumner leads you chronologically through the history of American wars, providing you with a brief contextual and historical basis for each war, then listing a variety of Ancestry.com databases that relate to them. Not intended as an exhaustive historical treatise, Military Records at Ancestry.com is nonetheless a handy little tool for navigating the Military Collection on the #1 family history resource on the Internet.
