Dear Ms. Gierke,
Thank you for contacting the History Hub!
The best place for you to start your search is on the National Archives website’s page, “The American Revolution.” There you can find the various kinds of records where a soldier’s name might appear, as well as the different databases and search engines you can use to look up their name. There are links to the National Archives catalog as well as Ancestry, Family Search, and Fold3. Try different sites to see which of their search functions are easiest for you to use.
We wish you all the best with your research!
