Pensions Project

As part of my research project on the 7th West Virginia Cavalry, I have found that pension records can be an invaluable source of information. However, pension records are still in paper format at the National Archives in Washington, D.C.  It is both cost and time prohibitive for me to obtain copies of all soldiers in the regiment.  I am asking that descendants who obtain copies of their ancestor’s pension file to provide me with a xerox copy.

Contact me to obtain my mailing address. Thank you for your willingness to share this information with me. It is greatly appreciated.
