http://www.lincolnarchives.us/. Use code 8AFC42CCC2 to take advantage of the free offer. After the free access period the site will revert to subscription-only access.
The site gives three ways to find information: a regular search feature, searching by NARA Record Group descriptions, and a site map with subject headers. There are records related to prisoners of war, the slave trade, court martials, Lincoln's assassination, and more. Photographs, political cartoons, and newspapers are also available.
Genealogy is like a jigsaw puzzle, but you don't have the box top, so you don't know what the picture is supposed to look like. As you start putting the puzzle together, you realize some pieces are missing, and eventually you figure out that some of the pieces you started with don't actually belong to this puzzle. I'll help you discover the right pieces for your puzzle and assemble them into a picture of your family.
