Learn about your Civil War Ancestors – for FREE

I’m not sure if any of you share my passion for all things Civil War, but I stumbled upon this major find today and though it was worthy of sharing. The National Archive and Ancestry.com are teaming up in honor of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War to offer the public access to millions of their Civil War records FOR FREE!!! From what I gather, this has never happened before, and it only lasts for a week (April 7 – April 14), so please take advantage of this offer and learn about your Civil War ancestors!

Here’s the link: http://www.ancestry.com/civilwar150

    I was just thinking (after hearing a piece on NPR about the civil war and people who do the reenactments) that I would ask my mom (who is addicted to ancestry.com) about any ancestors who fought in the civil war.. looks like I can just look it up myself :). cool!

    Hmm, I don’t know. It was on my way home from work so maybe All Things Considered? I’m not too sure.
