The Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System (CWSS) is a database hosted by theNational Park Service containing information about the men who served in the Union and Confederate armies during the Civil War. The Ulster County Genealogical Society recommends that a variety of spellings be used when searching for an ancestor, as the site is very exacting. Furthermore, they suggest that “since the soldiers frequently completed their service, and then re-entered the war under a different regiment, please be open to the possibility that your ancestor may be listed under a different regiment than your previous research may have shown.”
To search for your patriot ancestor, click on “GRS” icon (located towards the top right hand side of the page). Use exact spelling for searches.
