Wed, 22 Mar 2000

We are conducting a national search for all GAR posts that have ever existed. We are looking for the names, locations, charter dates (issue and surrender), locations of GAR halls, related websites.

We will be posting this to our web site http://www.suvcw.org once it is completed. Currently we are still crossreferencing and researching. We would appreciate any assistance in this historic effort. Should you have access to any GAR records or know of web sites listing names of members, we would like to link this to our main database, please submit the URL. If you see incomplete information or errors in this data, please let me know.

Thanks for your assistance.
