CD: Grand Army of the Republic: Civil War Veterans, Department of Massachusetts, 1866-1947 - A. Dean Sargent. This CD-ROM was created for the purpose of preserving the records of the Grand Army of the Republic, Department of Massachusetts and to offer a convenient source of the membership for historians and genealogists. The Civil War Veteran upon joining the Grand Army of the Republic registered at his local post. The post was required to forward reports to the department headquarters containing the members’ status. It has been estimated that over 14,000 members’ records can be found here on file in varying forms of print. Additional records have been located in cities and towns throughout the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. This book includes the names of over 36,000 members from these sources. The CD also includes the Sons of Veterans and the Ladies Auxiliaries, which totals over 100,000 members. The first official charter issued in Massachusetts was dated October 4, 1866 and was awarded to the William Logan Rodman post located in the city of New Bedford. There are 268 posts listed and within each post the entries are in alphabetical order by the last name and include names, rank, military unit, post #, location of the post, birth and death date and the place where either they were born or resided.
