    The United States Digital Map Library, a project of the USGenWeb Archives, is now under the coordination of Kelly Mullins and Mary Ann Hetrick. Please take a moment to browse this project at As with all Archives projects, this one is dependent on both volunteers and contributions. Many states are currently in need of coordination, and map contributions are both needed and appreciated.

    The USGenWeb Archives Project has begun in earnest to gather from contributors and upload military pension records for all wars prior to 1900. Please visit to find out more!

    Did your ancestor serve in the military?

    History, beginning with the early exploration, to present day, has provided nearly every generation with the participation and consequences of war. Each of these wars have a political history and consequence, but what is even more intriguing is the family history and consequences, that have ultimately shaped generations of families. Much of the family history can be told through the military records of an individual. The Pension records provide a timeline and documentation of your ancestors life. It not only places your ancestor into the context of history, but provides an avenue to explore your ancestor in the context of family life.

    Did your ancestor get a pension? Did his widow get a pension? Are there family stories told of your ancestor within the pension records?

    The answer is probably "YES" to all of the above!

    Visit and submit your ancestors pension records today.
