“Unpacking a Civil War Pension File” presented by Jane Gramlich
The Civil War pension system resulted in a collection of historical records housed at the National Archives that are invaluable for genealogists. Using her 2nd great grandfather’s pension file as a case study, Jane will discuss ways to interpret these documents and the amazing stories they can tell us.
Jane currently serves as Vice President and Program Chair of CVGS. She is a librarian in the Special Collections Division of the Akron-Summit County Public Library, and has published articles in several journals including Ohio Genealogical Society Quarterly, The Genealogical Magazine of New Jersey and Vermont Genealogy.
