Massachusetts soldiers, sailors, and marines in the Civil War - 1861 to 1865: By Massachusetts Adjutant-general's office, Norwood Press, 1931.  The compilation contains the names of all the men who served in Massachusetts units during the Civil War. There is a short history of the regiment followed by the names of the men. The details for each man named in the record are: full name, rank, home, age, occupation, date of service and discharge, and reason for discharge. Mr. Cross was the last of three editors and it was he who completed the monumental task. Together, the military records in these 8 volumes plus Index Volime,  reference approximately 140,000 individuals, nearly all men who served in Massachusetts units during the Civil War. Chapter 475 of Massachusetts' Acts of 1899 provided for the compilation and publication of a complete record of Massachusetts soldiers, sailors, and Marines who served in the Civil War. Civil War veterans began the work of compilation which lasted for nearly thirty years and involved the examination and replication of over one million records. Compilers found records on original enlistment papers, muster-in rolls, descriptive rolls, town reports, casualty lists, monthly reports, hospital records, muster-out reports, and miscellaneous papers.

These files contain images of every page of the original eight Volumes Plus Index Volume of one of the most valuable genealogy resources available. Reprints of these books will cost hundreds of dollars and the complete set (if found available) would cost a thousand. In contrast, the CD version weighs one-half ounce, is easier to search and is available for a far more affordable price.


About Our CDs

Many of our CDs are composed of collections of multiple texts and documents concentrating on specific regions or subject areas. Many contain 5, 10 or more separate publications. Each CD is truly a reference BONANZA to the home historian with thousands of pages of research information. The age of most of these text make them inaccessible to the average researcher. Naturally their scarcity and fragility makes them very expensive to acquire hence often kept under lock and key in an effort to preserve them. Unfortunately this also makes them unavailable for public view. Our CDs are produced by scanning the actual pages of the original text making them not only excellent resources but archival copies available for future generations. If you could find a hard copy of any of these books it would cost hundreds of dollars - individually worth many times the cost of a CD. The average cost of a single CD, containing our "theme or regional" based collections has been kept affordable in an effort to make this information obtainable to as many home researchers as possible.
Our CDs have become the ultimate research tool. Having a copy on hand allows research at your leisure and your schedule while in the comfort of your home. Additionally you can still print individual or groups of pages as you need directly from your CDs. Giving you the best of both old and new research techniques.
