Hello Starjet.

It's all very addictive.

Do you know much about what your ancestors did during the war?

Being new to all of this I'm guessing you want to know if they were Inf. or heavy artilliy etc. Is that correct? I also know some were killed and captured. Yes it is addictive even when you don't know a lot about it.

Hi Starjet,

 I'm just curious.  It's good to hear such stories - it makes it all more real and relevant somehow. I regret that I never asked my late grandfather what he did in WW2 (although after  hearing I was visiting Berlin, he did give me the enigmatic advice that it was a nice city if one stayed clear of the Hitler Youth...).

)__ Still haven't got positive proof of some but here's  a couple tid-bits.

Charles J. Hulslander was a Corp.  Union  16th Calvary Pa. Died 7-28-1864

Jacob Hulslander was a Pvt.  Union  86th Inf. N.Y. Co. E  died 9-12-1862

Isaac Hulslander was a Pvt.  Union  43rd Inf. Illinois. (My dad's great uncle)Fought at Shiloh Tennessee 4-6-1862

Frank  Hulslander may have been a deserter . Not sure. Could have re-enlisted after that.

Randolph Burger was a Pvt.  Union   Il. 16th Calvary Co. F captured 3-1-1864 at Jonesville , Va. ( Survived ? )

John Bryner was Adjunt Col. Union   Il. Inf.  1st battle at Farmington,Miss 5-9-1861 plus 7 other battles.

B. Burger was a Pvt.  Confederate  Orleans Fire Reg. La. Milita Co. A

A.H. Burger was a Confederate 35th Inf. Tn.(5th Inf) (1st Mountain Rifle Reg.)

A.L. Burger was a Confederate 19th Reg. Inf. Alabama

Abraham Burger Confedertae  57th Reg.Va. Inf.

Andrew J Burger  Confedertae 65th Reg. Inf. Ga.

I have a "BIG" group for all the surnames but just thought I'd give you a few.

Thanks Starjet - I'm sure there's an interesting story behind each person you list. Were you interested in genealogy before you got hooked on the war (no cure for this addiction, thankfully!)?
