Re: Looking for an ancestor
- When looking up someone in the regimental roster there is one
important thing to remember. The name of the town listed by the
soldiers name is not where that soldier is from but where he signed
up. Just thought I would let you all know although, I sure some of
you may already know that.
GO TAR HEELS!!!
