I had not looked at my great great grandfather Wyman B. Nightingale from Massachusetts,Civil war record in a long time. When I recently took another look at it I was surprised to see a picture posted with the record. Nobody I have talked to involved in our family tree that participates on Ancestry. com knew where it came from? Would you be able to find out?
Mark

Using the same criteria listed in my Comment No. 1, the database now locates Meeker soldiers in New Jersey. It’s too bad I had to report the problem here, when Member Solutions insisted that the fault was mine. Thank you for fixing this.

It’s Civil War Soldier Records and Profiles.

CT is one of the states listed as being finished so I sent an email to the address provided for Historical Data Systems and found out that my soldier had been accidently skipped over at data-entry. They indicated they will add his CT service and link it to his NJ service. I really like this database and the relational links and that the company is open to corrections and additions but I just don’t know when it will get done or how long it will take for the correction to be updated to Ancestry’s version of the database. I have another soldier I couldn’t find and sent another email but haven’y heard anything about him yet.

I found my grea-great grandfather and Uncle in the new data base and learned exactly which battles they fought in. Looking forward to further research helps on the Civil War.

Take a look at the Lincoln papers. The search engine appears to work fine, but when you click on the “view image” icons, no document images appear.

example: Search > Abraham Lincoln Papers > Abraham Lincoln Papers > Series 1 General Correspondence 1833-1916 > (178) 05 Oct 1864 – 11 Oct 1864 > John Perkins Jr To Abraham Lincoln [no image appears]

Please fix.

The record correctly answers the question “Survived the War?” with a No. There needs to be a way to reconcile this information.

Thank you
