A better way to find your Civil War ancestor.

This system offers powerful tools (e.g., phonetic searches, wildcards, etc.) that are not otherwise available to search the same database that is used by the "Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System (CWSS)." It also searches some databases that are not available in that system, including Civil War burials and Court Martial records. Once the soldier/sailor is found, it will provide online links and other advice about where you can find his records.
