NARA Scanning Continues

NARA Scanning Continues over the Summer!
There are three open dates for scanning pension files at the National Archives: 
June 20th,  July 16th, and August 1st.  If you are interested in volunteering please send an email to

FxGS is about halfway through  Company B of the 2nd USCT Infantry Regiment. There were 10 companies in the regiment. The soldiers were mostly from the DC/Virginia/Maryland area, but as the regiment moved around the country, additional soldiers were mustered i from those locations.   Once this regiment's files are scanned we will be moving on to Company C.

As always, if you have a pension file of an ancestor that has not been scanned to date, you may ask that it be pulled for scanning. 

Thank you to the many FxGS volunteers who have scanned over 20,000 files to date!
