Tracing Your War of 1812 British Soldier

by Paul Milner    |    Intermediate    |     O Canada     |     England     |

Different records are created for officers and enlisted men in the British Army. This lecture uses case studies to trace involvement of officers and enlisted using examples from the War of 1812, though the records are applicable for most pre WWI soldiers, thus much wider appeal.
