A new interactive touch screen kiosk in the Sutler Shop at Fort Delaware will help visitors look for ancestors who may have stayed at the fort during the Civil War.
The kiosk contains 41,000 records of Confederate prisoners of war and Union soldiers.
Visitors can now type in the last name of the ancestor and find information on the individual’s rank, regiment and company along with any other information in the Fort Delaware Society’s records. The visitor can fill out a form to request that the information be sent to them.
