Ohio Civil War Genealogy Journal #4 of 2009

The new issue of OCWGJ features a memorial to indefatigable Andersonville researcher John H. "Jack" Lundquist. Other contributions include the following footnoted articles:

Cora Slack, "Albert L. Slack, 121st Ohio Volunteer Infantry, Delaware and Marion Counties OH"

S. A. Mendenhall, "Four McLin Brothers from Hocking County: Thomas, Andrew, James, and Ezra, and Their Service to the Union During the Civil War"

Darrell Helton, "Clement L. Vallandigham and the Copperheads"

Also reviews of William James Smith's Memoirs of the 2nd Ohio Volunteer Cavalry, Company M, and History of the 55th Ohio Volunteer Infantry.

And it wouldn't OCWGJ without "Ask the Experts," which features questions and detailed answers that transparently describe the research. If you're new and want to start getting a feel for how the pros deal with questions about ancestry and documentation, this is a fun way to get into it.
