Civil War Lineage

To recognize the contributions of Miami County families to the Civil War the MCHGS offers the Civil War Families Lineage Society. The requirements for this society are that the applicant must be a member of the MCHGS and must prove they are a direct or collateral descendant of any person who served in the Civil War for the Union or Confederacy as a military member, in the Squirrel Hunters, or as a spy, male or female, as long as the Civil War ancestors lived, served or died in Miami County. The date of Civil war service must be between April 12, 1861 and August 31, 1866.

Lineage Society awards are made each November at the Annual Meeting. Please fill out a Lineage Application. The deadline for submissions is September 1. Only one lineage society pin will be issued to each approved member for any given MCHGS lineage society. An applicant may request to have all qualifying ancestors’ names (newly approved and previously approved) included on his/her new certificate for a given lineage society, assuming that there is room on the form for them all. Otherwise, only the name(s) of the newly approved ancestors will be included. Replacement certificates or pins may be purchased for a $4.00 fee each, plus postage. Please select Application Guidelines & Rules to view the necessary protocols and instructions.
