Could you please provide me with some additional information pertaining to your ancestor. Name, DOB if known, and place of birth.
Dear Mr. Miller,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the series Indexes to the Carded Records of Soldiers Who Served in Volunteer Organizations During the Civil War and the series Carded Records Showing Military Service of Soldiers Who Fought in Volunteer Organizations During the American Civil War in the Records of the Adjutant General's Office, 1762 - 1917 (Record Group 94) that may include a file for your great grandfather. Some of these records have been digitized and are available using the Catalog. For more information about the non-digitized records, please email the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also located numerous series related to Wisconsin in the Records of the Provost Marshal General’s Bureau (Civil War) (Record Group 110) that may be of interest to you. Most of these records have not been digitized. You may contact the National Archives at Chicago (RM-CH) at email@example.com for additional assistance with these records.
Finally, you might also find some relevant information in the series Registers of Federal Prisoners Held at Andersonville Prison, Georgia in the Records of the Commissary General of Prisoners (Record Group 249). These records have not been digitized. You may contact RDT1 for more information about these and similar records.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT1 and RM-CH. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
We hope this information is helpful, and best of luck with your family research!
