Since this is the sesquicentennial of the beginning of the Civil War, I have decided to “begin” to get serious about finding my children’s Civil War ancestors. I’ll be easy on myself and make it a goal to be complete in four years in time for the anniversary of the end of the war.
William Albert Clark - ~1885
I have already found a 3rd g-grand uncle, but that is not the same as a direct line family member. I’m looking for two people. The first is my wife’s great grandfather, William A. Clark, from Massachusetts. I have a draft record, now I need some service records. The second is my 3rd g-grandfather, Theodore Schulz, from Missouri. I have nothing for Theodore. That is why I’m off to NARA in Waltham.
Wish me luck.
