Did your ancestor serve in the Civil War?
Help us complete the Roster Project (http://www.shapell.org/the-shapell-roster/), a comprehensive database of Jewish-American soldiers and sailors who fought in the Civil War for both the Union and the Confederacy! The result of more than 25,000 hours of research, we are convinced that the Shapell Roster will be of interest to academic scholars, descendants, and anyone interested in Jewish American history.
Our searchable database, which will be free to the public online, will go live with a limited set of records in 2019. As we complete additional research, more records will become available. We are so excited, and hope people like you will be, as well.
My goal is to connect with descendants whose ancestors served during the American Civil War. Does that include you? Contact me, Eliza, at firstname.lastname@example.org to connect.
