Question:  After recently starting my family tree I found out my 2nd great-grandfather was a Confederate soldier living in Florida until 1922.  Can you tell me where I might find out about him on the internet?


Answer:  To determine which Florida regiment he may have been involved in I would suggest the "free "National Parks website - Civil War Soldier and Sailor System:

You can also search an index to pensions awarded by the state of Florida to Confederate veterans online at  Florida first awarded pensions to soldiers in 1885, and to their widows in 1889.  The files can be acquired from the Florida State Archives - R. A. Gray Building, 500 South Bronough Street, Tallahasse, FL 32399-025.
