Craig R. Scott’s “A Day in the Revolution” recording now available!

Recordings for the Institute’s most recent course, “A Day in the Revolution: Researching Your Soldier” with Craig Roberts Scott, CG, FUGA, are now available for purchase in the Virtual Institute Store.

Researching your Revolutionary War soldier consists of understanding the war, the organizations created by the war, and the records created during the war and its aftermath. It requires a research strategy. Compiled Military Service Records are incomplete. Pension application files lead to other records. Pension ledgers and pension payments are generally ignored. Last and final payments can provide information not found in pension application files. Bounty land files may explain family migration.

All course recording packages contain the four lecture recordings, all syllabus material, and all assignments and answer keys. These packages are available for $69.99.

In addition to Craig’s course, the following course packages are also available:
