The Nevada State Library and Archiveshas an excellent collection of military records, including:

  • Muster rolls from the 1860's to 1902
  • Nevada State Militia records beginning in 1865
  • National Guard records
  • Selective Service cards from World War I to the Vietnam War

Civil War (1861-1865)

Fort Churchill Ruins
See Nevada in the Civil War for information about Nevada Civil War records, web sites, etc. with links to articles about the Nevada regiments involved in the Civil War.

The regimental pages often include lists of the companies with links to the counties where the companies started. Men in the companies often lived in the counties where the companies were raised. Knowing a county can help when researching more about the soldiers and their families.

The Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System allows name searching for soldiers. The result set gives the regiments for the soldiers. Then you can check the Wiki regiment pages to determine counties. Often knowing the counties that had men in a regiment will help you determine if a soldier was your ancestor.
A wiki article describing an online collection is found at:

World War I (1917-1918)
