Ask a Genealogist: Final Payment Vouchers of the Revolutionary War

 Permanent link
 

Question:

Can you tell me how the Final Payment vouchers are arranged for Revolutionary War pensions?

Answer:

The Final Payment Vouchers are part of National Archive Record Group # 217 (or simply RG-217). They are arranged in alphabetical order by the state in which they collected their pension. Therefore you can request all the "Johnson" family in New Hampshire in one box. These records are consulted in person at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. They have not been digitized or microfilmed at present.
