Nebraska Civil War Veterans Database

Nebraska Civil War Veterans Database

A database (Nebraska Civil War Veterans Database) has been compiled that allows researchers to locate name references within the Civil War Veterans Indexes. The researcher may input a Last Name, First Name, Unit Served, GAR Unit Number, GAR Unit City, and/or GAR Unit County and will be given a listing of all the matching name index entries.

The information provided in the data files is only a partial extract. More complete information for the veteran may be found by reviewing the name in the “Index to Civil War Veterans from Nebraska,” which is a microfilm alphabetical index of approximately 45,000 Nebraska Civil War veterans at the Nebraska State Historical Society Library. Researchers who wish to obtain copies of either the GAR Roster entry or a GAR burial card for their ancestor (if the ancestor was buried in Nebraska) should contact the Library/Archives ( for pricing information.

If you entered… The search results would include…
Last NameAlexander
GAR Post County: Lancaster
All references to the last name “Alexander” from “Lancaster” County GAR Post.  Note that only one field is required for a search. If you know only a last name, you may leave the other fields blank. Also, because first names vary – e.g. Michael J. Kennedy may be entered as M.J. Kennedy – researchers are advised to search on only a SURNAME to see the FULL LIST of possible matches of interest.
