For me, most of the databases will not be of any use (yet), but the last database, the U.S. Civil War Soldier Records and Profiles database may have some useful info in it for me. I have not taken the time to look yet, but I will get to it.
I am not a huge Civil War Buff, but I did have at least one ancestor that did fight in the Civil War, Robert Towler. Enlisted in Kentucky, and his widow applied for a pension in Indiana. With the Toler / Towler surname having roots in Virginia, I am sure that there will be plenty of Toler/Towler's in the database, many on both sides of the conflict.
I am interested to see what it may turn up! I will keep you posted.
