BULLET State Archives Confederate Civil War Military Records Not in the Holdings of the National Archives
The following list of records of Confederate soldiers which are held by various state archives is offered as a convenience to St. Louis Public Library users who are researching ancestors who served in the Confederate Army, Navy, and Marine Corps. Most of these records are not in the collection of the National Archives, and so can only be accessed at the state archives, although some state archives are beginning to make both indexes to Civil War records and facsimiles of some records available on their websites.

For each state, a list of records held by the state archives, its mailing address, telephone number, and web address, and a note about its research policy are provided. Please notify us of any changes in addresses or telephone numbers (webref@slpl.lib.mo.us).
