United Daughters of the Confederacy®
The Texas Division Business Office was established in 1896, and has housed its historical and current records since that time. Although we have extensive research
material, information is limited for some Confederate ancestors, and many of the older member applications have little genealogical information. Some applications do go
into great detail about the ancestor's experiences in the war, however, so an inquiry and some research is necessary to determine just what can be obtained from the
Confederate Military and pension records are not available through our office, but one may obtain these records from one of the sources below:
Research in our Business Office is done as time allows. Initial research will be done for free, however all requests require a fee for copying and postage. In-depth research
also requires a small fee. Once it is determined how much material will be required to fill a request, an assessment will be made as to cost and the inquirer will be notified.
Please complete our form with as much information as possible. Personal information on most living members will not be provided without the member's permission and that is
required before any request or research can be initiated. Should permission be required our office will secure a release and the requested information will be forwarded to
the person making the inquiry.
