IGSI is sponsoring a class this Saturday, October 12, about researching Civil War ancestors.
Many Irish fought in the Civil War, on both sides; your ancestor may have been one of them. Experienced researcher Beth Vought will present websites where you can begin your search, discuss the General Adjunct source, and explain how to order pension records.
Join her on Irish Saturday at the MGS library (1185 Concord St N, S St Paul). The class will be held from 10:30-12, which leaves plenty of time for you to do other research at the library afterward.
The class fee is $10 for members and $15 for nonmembers.
