I began my research on the 127th New York regiment over 15 years ago mostly on
foot visiting cemeteries and libraries searching out records on microfiche! I spent many 
hours and quarters at the copy machine!  Now many records are digitized and online
 via the internet which does make researching easier but there is still an art to making 
the connections and good old fashioned intuition and steadfastness.  This website is
constantly evolving and will be updated as new information is discovered.
I enjoy the thrill of chasing down facts and preserving history! Thank you for visiting.
