Service Records

During the French and Indian War, many colonists served in local militias. Because these were local units and not part of the British Army, any surviving records are in historical societies and state libraries and archives.

The best indexes and records are by state, county or town rather than by country. To find them:

  • Do a Place Search for the state in the Family History Library Catalog.
  • On the Topic List, click on Military - French and Indian War.
  • For additional records, try a Place Search for the county or town also.

A book for information on military land grants awarded to veterans of the French and Indian War is:

  • "Calendar of Warrants For Land in Kentucky, Granted for Service in the French and Indian War" (FHL 976.9 R21t 2001)

Books

  • "Struggle For Empire: A Bibliography of the French and Indian War" (FHL book 973 M23b, vol. 7) by James G Lydon. This book is arranged by topics and is a bibliography with brief annotations of books and articles relating to the French and Indian War.
