Finding Your Family Home Using Maps & Other Location Details
Locate family farms and residences using maps and other geographic funding aids.  Using modern techniques and tested research strategies, follow the pathway to the front door or somewhere nearby.  
 
Private Claims, Troubled Pensions, and Letters for Help
Civilian families often made requests for payment of services rendered, which were yet unpaid or damages created by war or government intervention. These also include the pension application process for heirs and widows when documentation was lost. Sometimes, families just needed a little help.  Learn how and when these requests were honored, ignored, or lost and what records might be found.

Discover strategies used by researchers when your family is not where they should be in the Census Schedules and other Indexed Lists.
