Program Description

Event Details

The U.S. Civil War involved most of the families in the country at that time. It was a traumatic era in our history, but the records created for the pension files can provide a wealth of information. This presentation will show examples of the data in the files and how to analyze the information to develop a plan for further research.



Special services like sign language interpretation and assistive listening can be provided at events to patrons upon request. Please give at least up to five business days notice to library staff in order to schedule services at events. Call 239-479-4636 or stop by the reference desk at your local library.

Photography During Programs

While attending library programs, visitors may be photographed by library staff. Photographs become library property and may be used in library promotions. Individuals who do not want to be photographed or recorded are responsible for removing themselves from the area or notifying the photographer of their opt-out status.
