Genealogy: A discussion of Complied Military Service Records
By Tamie Dehler
Special to the Tribune-Star
This is the second article in a series of three on locating and ordering Civil War records from the National Archives Records Administration (NARA). Last week, part one dealt with the Civil War pensioner’s index and files. This week will continue with a discussion of Complied Military Service Records (CMSRs). The final column next week will give tips on ordering both types of records. This information is drawn from a guide written by Cynthia Fox and Connie Potter of NARA.
