Ruth's Genealogy

“I don't know who my grandfather was; I am much more concerned to know what his grandson will be.” -Abraham Lincoln

“As we approach the bicentennials of both Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis, Alexander Street Press is offering free access to some of our most popular collections. Through April 30, 2008 you can explore three of our Civil War databases with no restrictions. As a bonus, we are also offering free access to two streaming music collections, which contain songs from the Civil War era.”

I found references to several of my Kennedy ancestors, although nothing new at this point. This site does have numerous photos, letters and diaries, and 1860-1865 periodicals, as well as period music.
