Genealogy Links

The internet and links came along just in time for me to use them for genealogy research. By far the best source for genealogy links is Cyndi's List. There are other links lists which are quire useful. Be sure to add any websites to your favorites if them seem useful to your research. I even use the right click and set as a desktop icon when I am working intently to research a specific fact. 

The importance of favorites is demonstrated when you work your way through about ten clicks to find just what you want and them loose the entire search because of a random click. I speak from experience. Now I save links in favorites. They can always be deleted at the end of the session.

So on to a grouping of hyperlinks which is the essence of the advantage of the internet. Click On!

Missouri's Union Provost Marshal Papers, 1861-1866
The Provost Marshal Papers for the state of Missouri are part of Record Group 109, War Department Collection of Confederate Records in the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). Although they are records of the Union Army, they were associated with Confederate records in the War Department because they relate, in part, to Confederate citizens and sympathizers. The National Archives refers to this collection as Union Provost Marshals' File of Papers Relating to Individual Citizens. This national collection is three hundred rolls of microfilm documents, 1861-1866. The online database created by the Missouri State Archives is an index of the Missouri portion of the collection.
