An “Act of Congress”

If you have done research for military pension applications, you may have noticed that the Act (passed by Congress) that authorized the pension is listed in the documents. That Act specifies the criteria that a veteran (or survivor) must meet in order to be eligible for the pension.

Michael John Neill in his Genealogy Tip of the Day blog, recently encouraged readers to do some reading of the Act listed.  The criteria listed in the Act may reveal some hints about your ancestor that could promote your research.
