Not many people know this but there were several brigades of Irish in the American Revolutionary War. None the least were the Regiments of Dillon, Berwick.
I had no idea which one my multiple great’s grandfather was in but he saw a lot of action or so I hear. Then I found this reseource: http://services.dar.org/public/dar_research/search/?Tab_ID=1
It’s the Daughters Of The American Revolutionary War. They have (they say) the biggest and best database of all the men and women who served in that war.
I used it and found him. Now I have some information to go on, but I need more to get everything I need.
Please share all the best places you have found to find your lost relatives on this thread.
Thanks, Megan Donnelly
