An Act in relation to the bureau of Military Statistics.
(Passed May 11, 1865.)
This database contains an index of names of the Civil War veterans of Saratoga
County, New York State, as derived from the "Town Clerks' Registers". The "Registers" contain a variety of useful genealogical information, depending on the extent to which the various Clerks supplied the information requested on the forms. Records for some towns in Saratoga County either were never prepared or have not survived. Please link to "Registration Details" for the towns included in this database and for more information about the "Registers".
The data available in the 'Registers' for Saratoga County were transcribed from the originals now in the collection of the New York State Archives and from other surviving register copies in municipal offices in Saratoga County. This data was prepared as a computer file and printed by Lynn Calvin, volunteer at the Saratoga County Historian's Office. You can e-mail Mr. Calvin at the below address for information on any indexed listing.
Heritage Hunters volunteer Jerry Woodard prepared this Saratoga County Civil War Veteran Index for the SaratogaNYGenWeb page.
