How much do you know about the Trent Affair?

The U.S. Avoids War with Britain: December 26, 1861

Save 25% on All-Access Membership Limited time. On December 26, 1861, President Lincoln and his cabinet decided to release imprisoned Confederate envoys James Mason and John Slidell in order to avoid the possibility of war with Britain, thus concluding the diplomatic uproar known as the Trent Affair.
It all started when an overzealous Union commander, Charles Wilkes, stopped a British mail ship, the Trent, in the Caribbean on November 8. Wilkes knew that the ship was carrying Mason and Slidell on their way to Europe to argue the Confederacy's case in London and Paris. Wilkes had the Trent boarded, and Mason and Slidell (and their two secretaries) were illegally removed from the ship. (To make it legal... Continue Reading

150th Anniversary (1864–2014) This Month in the Civil War: Battle of Nashville

Civil War Collection 150th Anniversary
Following the Battle of Franklin, which had devastated John Bell Hood's Confederate forces, Hood pursued the Union troops to Nashville, where they had joined with those of George H. Thomas. Now vastly outnumbered, Hood's battered Army of Tennessee took a defensive position parallel to the Union lines on December 2, 1864, and waited for the Union attack.
Thomas finally began his offensive on December 15. He directed part of his troops to attack Hood's right, while the majority of his forces were sent in a wheeling maneuver to smash into Hood's left flank. The plan proved successful, but... Continue Reading

Come see our new Service Records from the Civil War!

Compiled Military Service Records of the Civil War

Save 25% on All-Access Membership Limited time. The Compiled Military Service Records (CMSRs) are one of the best places to look for information on the military careers of your Civil War ancestors. Compiled by the National Archives starting in the 1890s, the Civil War CMSRs contain basic military service information for soldiers in the volunteer armies (and in a few cases for women attached to the armies, often via hospital service as matrons, laundresses, etc.).
The information in a soldier's CMSR was originally consolidated from a variety of sources and summarized on card abstracts, which were then filed using a system of envelopes, with one envelope per soldier per regiment. The sources for the card abstracts included muster rolls, regimental returns, pay vouchers, hospital rolls, and other such records. In addition to the cards, some CMSRs also contain personal papers such as casualty sheets, discharge certificates, enlistment papers, inventories of personal effects, medical records, or ...Continue Reading

Participate in the 'GeneaGraves Weekend' on November 15-16, 2014
A few weeks ago, Geneanet has launched the GeneaGraves mobile app for Android and iOS. With this app, you can easily take pictures of graves and upload them into Geneanet. Then, these pictures are free for every Geneanet member.

Pictures can also be attached to any person in the Geneanet family tree. That show our involvement in the free and collaborative genealogy.

To formally launch this new service, we will organise the 'GeneaGraves Weekend' for all of our members worldwide. On November 15-16, 2014, take pictures of graves in a nearby cemetery!


How to participate?

1. Install the GeneaGraves app for Android and iOS on your mobile or tablet.

2. Go to a nearby cemetery, launch the app, select a project or create a new one, then take as many pictures as you want.

3. Once you're back home, upload the pictures into your Geneanet account via a Wi-Fi access point. These pictures will be free for every Geneanet member.

If you can't go to a cemetery or if you don't have a mobile/tablet, you can participate in the collaborative index of pictures which have been uploaded into Geneanet.

See if your nearby cemetery is not already listed on Geneanet.

Participate in the 'GeneaGraves Weekend' and help to grow our free database of tombstones.
