Civil War Soldiers and Sailors Database

History and Old Stuff...



Dennis gave me an assignment this morning, since I am staying home from church with a cold. He had found a web address for the Civil War Soldiers and Sailors Database in his America's Civil War magazine this morning and he wanted me to run the name "Netz" through their search engine. (Dennis's father always said that a Netz ancestor had fought for the Union in the Civil War.)

It seems likely that Dennis's father was right. The search engine yielded 19 Netz names from New York, Ohio, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Michigan, Indiana, and West Virginia. (Apparently the surname is not as uncommon as Dennis thinks it is.) Dennis is going to need a little more information to pinpoint the Netz who was his ancestor!

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)

Thanks for reading.
