I've placed an alphabetical index on my site to the 1907-1933 Pension
Payment Card microfilm reels at the Internet Archive. You can find it at
. Or here is a direct link:
You can use it to direct you to the correct microfilm reel. Once there, use
the "Read Online" link to bring up the reel in the Archive's online reader.
The quickest way to search the cards is called a binary search. Go to about
the middle of the reel. If you went to far, go halfway back toward the
beginning. If you didn't go far enough, go halfway to the end. ... These
reels have about 1000 "pages" , so you should be able to find your card in
10-15 tries which takes a few minutes.
Since the cards begin with 1907 payments, not all Civil War pensioner's and
their wives will have survived.
