Tomorrow, Saturday August 18th, I will be speaking at the Whittier Area Genealogy Society, http://www.cagenweb.com/kr/wags/. My topic will be Captain John Bell: The Reluctant Confederate. This will be an overall presentation about American Civil War research. We will be covering quite a bit in the hour. Stop by and say hi!
This week, Genweekly, has a great article on researching Civil War income tax records written by Melissa Slate. Read about it on their blog at http://genweekly.com/. Didn't realize that there were Civil War income tax records? Well, I didn't know there were any either. That's what I like about blogs, genealogy magazines, and conferences. There's always a new resource out there!
