NEW JERSEY CIVIL WAR TREASURY VOUCHERS

A new database of interest to persons with NJ Civil War vets on their tree:

“New Jersey’s Civil War-period treasury vouchers collection includes 15,770 payment receipts for military expenditures and wartime purchases made by the State of New Jersey from 1861 through 1866. It includes soldiers' discharge certificates for final pay (over 9,300 items), affidavits of family members for pay due to deceased soldiers (over 1,400 items), and quarterly returns of the counties and cities listing the names of soldiers’ families and dependent mothers who received subsistence pay during their service. In all, nearly 114,000 index entries provide access to the content of the documents.”

This link provides access to the NJ Treasury Vouchers and other NJ Civil War items of interest:
