WELCOME to the Ohio Department of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War Graves Registration website.  The SUVCW is committed to the honor and preservation of the memory of the service and sacrifice made by our Civil War veterans over 140 years ago.

     To fulfill our mission, the SUVCW has undertaken a national project to locate, record and properly mark the final resting places of our soldier ancestors.  For our part, the Ohio Dept of the SUVCW is doing extensive research in Ohio county courthouses, libraries, historical societies and museums as well as field work in hundreds of cemeteries across our state.  Through the efforts of local SUVCW camps and aided by genealogical and historical volunteers, information about these soldiers is being preserved.  Whether one is looking for an ancestor soldier or researching the men of a specific regiment, our goal is to provide a user-friendly database.

     HELP with this ongoing project is gratefully appreciated.  If you have any information about a Civil War veteran buried in Ohio, please contact the county coordinator or Ohio Dept Graves Registration Officer Kent Dorr at [email protected].

     Many Ohio cemetery records are incomplete or missing and too many veterans graves are unknown or unmarked.  In addition to maintaining these burials records, the SUVCW can also provide help in obtaining proper service grave markers as well as government gravestones where needed.

     Our Civil War ancestors sacrificed to preserve the Union and its freedoms that we enjoy today.  If nothing else, we owe them the honor of remembrance.


Ohio Grave Registrations Top 50,000 !!
     I am pleased to announce that grave registrations for soldiers buried in Ohio entered in the National SUVCW on-line database has surpassed 50,000.  This milestone is the culmination of the work of many Brothers and other dedicated volunteers who have spent countless hours in courthouses, libraries and cemeteries throughout Ohio to make sure the record of the final resting places of our Civil War veterans is updated and available for research. 
    More burials have been entered in the database for Ohio than for any other state and the ongoing project has many more Ohio graves to verify and enter.
