Re: Help Reading Civil War Pension Card
In Response To: Re: Help Reading Civil War Pension Card ()
I have only ever ordered 4 pension packets -- three invalid, one wido, so I am hardle an expert.
Of thos I ordered two were ok, one very good, and one a great source on info.
I have always ordered by regular mail, and simply incude a copy of the card and say I think the number is XXXXX, see included copy. As Lyndam has suggested, it may be more clear in other formats.
I suggest getting the full packet right away, especially if you are confident that this is your guy.
