"How do I find my ancestor's death date?" is one of the most common questions I hear. And, why not? Death Certificates are a fairly modern occurrence, but most of our ancestors did not live in a time period when death certificates were generated. Fortunately, as researchers we can determine an ancestor's date of death using other resources.

Battle Flag of the 2nd Battalion Georgia Sharpshooters with Honors. The 2nd Battalion was formed in the summer of 1862.  They were later assigned to General J.K. Jackson's Brigade and surrendered with the Army of Tennessee. The 1st Battalion's flag must have closely resembled this flag but since no flag of the 1st survived the war it is impossible to know for sure. This flag was issued in Dalton, Ga. on December 1863 and made at the Augusta Depot.
