Kansas, Grand Army of the Republic Post Reports, 1880-1940

This record collection in Ancestry Library Edition (ALE) includes annual reports for the Kansas Department of the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR). An annual report consists of quarterly muster rolls sent to the state department by 500 local posts.

The quarterly muster rolls include all active members at the time the records were created. They also may include activities of the post, charter applications, and photographs of post charters. The Woman’s Relief Corps (WRC) opened auxiliaries for some GAR posts, and therefore some WRC records may also be found in this collection.

The quarterly muster rolls generally include:

Name
Age
Birthplace
Residence
Occupation
Military service

You may use ALE at Central Library or any of our branches.
