Researching American Civil War Records
with Dennis Ahearn
Tuesday, April 3, 2012 at 7 p.m.
Co-sponsored by the Chelmsford Genealogy Club

Dennis Ahern will speak on researching individuals who participated in the American Civil War, touching on the resources available in Massachusetts, the National Archives in Washington and on the Internet. These records sometimes provide clues to an individual's birthplace and family history through letters and affadavits in pension files. Mr. Ahern has lectured on a variety of historical and genealogical subjects in Ireland, Canada and the U.S., and has published articles in several journals. A trustee of the Acton Memorial Library since 1982, he is currently documenting all of the Civil War veterans of Acton. Born and raised in Arlington, he served as Vice President of the Arlington Historical Society from 1997-2001.
