Ask a Genealogist: Revolutionary War Pension records at NEHGS

(Military Records, NEHGS) Permanent link
 

Question:

When I visit NEHGS this week will I be able to research the pension files of my Revolutionary War soldiers?  Or do I need to order microfilm ahead of time.

Answer:

NEHGS offers many subscription databases for you to utilize during your visit to our research center in Boston.  Any patron computer will have access to FOLD3, and HeritageQuest. Both of these websites have images of the Revolutionary War pensions.  The images offered on FOLD3 are a much sharper resolution, and contain the entire file itself.
