Civil War soldiers often left a rich genealogical paper trail and many of these records are tucked away at the National Archives in Washington DC. Learn what records are available for your ancestors only at the National Archives, what records are online already, and how to access all of them. These records may unlock some of the family stories that have been forgotten over time, as well as break down a brick wall or two! 

Brian Rhinehart is a professional genealogist and speaker. He is a graduate of Boston University’s Certificate of Genealogy Research and the Genealogical Institute on Federal Records (GenFed) in Washington DC. A direct descendant of six Civil War soldiers, Brian specializes in Civil War and War of 1812 records at the National Archives in Washington DC and has retrieved military files for hundreds of clients there.
