1883 List of Pensioners on the Roll

The 1883 List of Pensioners on the Roll is the leading resource for researching your Civil War and War of 1812 era pension records.

On December 8, 1882, the U.S. Senate required the Secretary of Interior to submit a list of pensioners on the roll as of January 1, 1883. The Secretary of Interior submitted the completed list to the Senate on March 1, 1883, and was published that year in five volumes as "List of Pensioners on the Roll, January 1, 1883."

The 1883 Pensioners on the Roll includes the name of each pensioner, the cause for which pensioned, the Post Office address, the rate of pension per month, and the date of original allowance.

The contents of each volume is as follows:

  • Volume I - Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, and District of Columbia.
  • Volume 2 - New York, and Pennsylvania.
  • Volume 3 - Ohio, Illinois, and Iowa.
  • Volume 4 - Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Kansas, Nebraska, Colorado, California, Oregon, Nevada, Indian Territory (Oklahoma), Dakota Territory (North and South Dakota), New Mexico Territory, Montana Territory, Washington Territory, Idaho Territory, Utah Territory, Arizona Territory, Alaska Territory, Wyoming Territory.
  • Volume 5 - Delaware, West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, and foreign countries.

Much of the 1883 List of Pensioners on the Roll is now transcribed and online free of charge.

1847 - 1849 New York State Vital Records

New York State enacted a law in 1847 to require school districts to record Vital Records including birth, marriage and death records within their districts. However, some areas completely ignored the law and others adhered to it, but generally did not keep complete records, even for the years that were recorded. Unfortinately this law was terminated in 1849.

New Horizons Genealogy is working on locating and transcribing these records and posting them to our website. We have also linked to most of these vital records found on other websites in an attempt to make this the most complete of a collection as possible.

These 1847 - 1849 New York State Vital Records may be found here: 1847 - 1849 New York State Vital Records

This is an on going project and we are adding new records every week, so if you don't find what you are looking for, keep checking back.
