Pittsfield library receives gift: Grave information for pre-WW II Massachusetts vets

The Berkshire Athenaeum, Pittsfield's Public Library, received a valuable research gift this week. Steve Twining, on behalf  of the Massachusetts Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, presented 20 rolls of microfilm to the Athenaeum's Local History Department Supervisor, Kathleen Reilly. The film contains grave information about Massachusetts veterans of the Revolutionary War, as well as veterans of the War of 1812, Civil War, Spanish American War, and WW I. This valuable collection is available during regular library hours to researchers in our Local History Department, where digital microfilm reader/printers are available for viewing, printing, saving files to a CD, or scanning to a flash drive.
