Ever wonder whether you have descendants from the Civil War era and how to trace them? Join Bill Eddleman, Associate Director of Cape Girardeau Research Center, who will give a thorough overview of how to research a Civil War ancestor. The workshop includes how to determine whether an ancestor served in the war, key documents generated by and for Civil War veterans, and how to find their regiment online, among other research methods. Dr. Eddleman is also an active member of the Cape County Genealogical Society where he served as president for 14 years.
