GAR Applications Research Request



The original GAR Applications are in the possession of the Yamhill County Historical Society and were part of the Hopkins Family Donation to the society.

  • Nearly all the men applying had Newberg addresses.
  • Information includes:
    • applicants age, place born, current residence, occupation, date of enlistment, company, regiment, discharge date, reason discharged, rank, previous GAR membership application, signature [sometimes missing]
  • Transcriptions of the names were taken first from the signature and if ambiguous, compared to other surname entries on the form.
  • The surname spelling was not always consistent on the application.
  • Not every line is filled out on every application.
  • There are 118 applications.
  • If there is more than one application for a person, this may indicate the man had been dropped for lack of dues payment and had reapplied.

For a $5 donation to the Genealogical Society entries will be copied in full. This can be received electronically or in print.

For this request, you will need:

  • Full name of entry
