Welcome to the Black Confederate Soldiers website which focuses on connecting families with their ancestor's genealogical records and citations. The purpose of this website is to provide a one-stop location of free genealogy records by state about 19th Century slaves and freedmen who served in various capacities with the Confederate States Army and Navy during the American Civil War. Primary and Secondary sources of information are made available to family historians researching ancestors who lived in the southern states during the American Civil War (1861-1865).
The website was reorganized in 2014 from its 2010 layout to make it easier for librarians, archivists, genealogists and family historians to find content by state. As research uncovers additional records, information will be added to this website. All content and opinions on this site generated by Publishers, Editors, Journalists, Authors, Book Reviewers, Artists and others are the property and copyright of their respective holders.
