Collection Information

The records in this category include indexes to pension and related records, and in some cases the actual record is available. If you find a reference to a pension in an index, click the link on the left to "Learn more about this database" and follow the instructions to order a copy of the pension file, which will typically include much more information.

Military pension applications and records often contain valuable genealogical information, including names and birth dates of children and spouses, proof of marriage, and depositions from a soldier’s friends and family.
