Genealogy of the 33rd United States Colored Troops, Surnames G-H

This page is part of the Lowcountry Africana research project Who Lived This History? The 33rd United States Colored Troops. To view other portions of the project, please see the Table of Contents in the right sidebar.

 

Here, we present abstracts of records of the Freedmen's Savings and Trust (now digitized in the free collection Freedmen's Bank Records, 1865-1874 at FamilySearch.org), then layer on abstracts of military records digitized at Fold3.com from two collections, Civil War Soldiers – Union, Colored Troops 31st to 35th Infantry and Civil War and Later Veterans Pension Index. If you find an ancestor here, there are many more records waiting for you on Fold3.com, within the two subscription collections listed above.
