I rediscovered who my ancestor that hired a substitute to fight in the War of 1812 was. I was thinking it was William McPike. It was actually Nathan Browning.
I found out more tidbits about my ancestor Nicasio Del Castillo of Nicaragua. I found the info in books available online. Many books are now available online and have been a great source of information this year. You can take search inside many Amazon books before buying. Or you can read books at Archive.org and Google books available for free.
Wishing everyone success in their research in 2018!
