Phyllis- Don't know why but I am not getting emails when someone replies to my posts. I DO have the box checked to do so. Just happened back here today so I saw your reply.
I am trying like crazy to find the Navy enlistment record for my Andrew Willard. I am a total newbie when it comes to the Civil War Navy. I have been lucky finding pensions etc for Civil War infantry and they have been most helpful.
Fellow at Washington DC NARA told me they did not compile records for Navy [as they did for the Army] so just wondering who has the records I seek.
Thinking that someone with more experience might know. Thanks. Mary Lou
