How to Find Information on Genealogy: A Pathfinder*

This guide will introduce some of the resources available on Genealogy. It is not a comprehensive listing of sources, but is intended to be a starting point from which readers can begin their research according to their specific needs. CARL can provide basic assistance related to genealogy and Fort Leavenworth history but does not maintain the collection and staffing resources for extensive research. Please note also that CARL does not own military service records.
