Note: Please also see our Missouri Confederate Unit Rosters page for locating ancestors or if your ancestor served for another state you may also refer to the Regimental Histories page. 

Due to a large number of requests, this service is now only for those seriously interested in membership in the SCV.

The Missouri Division Genealogist will only do a Broadfoot Confederate Roster Index Search.  He will NOT trace your ancestry but rather will provide you with 
a listing of possible Confederate ancestors based upon a surname search.   If a possible Confederate ancestor is found, it is YOUR responsibility to request military records  to expand your knowledge about your Confederate ancestor. (see our Confederate Roster page regarding how to obtain military records)

To speed the process of locating information, please provide:

1) Name of ancestor that was of military age in 1861-1865 (For common surnames it is absolutely necessary to include a first name or initials).

2) State where ancestor resided in 1860.

NOTE: The Missouri Division SCV Genealogist may request a $5.00 fee for repeated requests.
