Hi Everyone,

I am back for today.  I am planning to continue my blog as soon as I can.At this time, I am planning to continue with the Mystery of John Bradshaw.  I hope that this will give ideas to readers on some steps to help in finding those hard-to-find ancestors!  Please let me know your ideas!

Today, I would like to show a card from a Civil War service record.I am unsure as to what the notation means in the area concerning the date.  At this time, I am thinking it says, “S. O. 2/7, 1864.”  Could this possibly mean Starts On February 7, 1864?

Thank you for your input on this!  Maggie
