War of 1812

I really wish I had checked for War of 1812 records pertaining to the SHIPMAN family last year at the National Archives in D.C. Actually, I wish I had researched something else rather than spending the entire day on Civil War pension files. There were other items of interest on my list, but I just couldn't get through those pensions fast enough. Anyway...

At the time, though, I didn't know about the excellent book War of 1812 Genealogy by George K. Schweitzer, which I recently found at the library. I would highly recommend this book to anyone with an interest in researching the available records.
