About this webinar

The War of 1812, often called America's Second Revolution, left behind a valuable set of records that have proven valuable for genealogical research. Many of these records can help solve the "pre-1850 census" issues when only the head of household was named in the US federal census. Participants will learn about the War of 1812, the major record sets of benefit to genealogists, how to identify service information such as location and military section of service, and which records are available to access online.
