Citadel Alumni Genealogical Research Guide

This guide will help researchers use The Citadel Archives collections to conduct genealogical research on Citadel alumni.

Digital Collections Website

The Digital Collections website is comprised of over 3o collections and almost 1,000 items that we have digitized and uploaded from The Citadel Archives. It contains institutional publications, alumni collections, photographs, letters, diaries, artifacts from our museum collection and much more.

From the homepage, you can browse collections, browse items or use the search bar at the top of the page.

The two collections that will be most useful in conducting research on alumni are:

  • Board of Visitor Meeting Minutes
  • Official Registers of Cadets and Officers


We do not have Board of Visitors Minutes and Official Registers online for every year. We have a small staff and are working hard to put as much content online as fast as we can. If you do not see the year you are looking for, please email us at and we would be happy to assist you.
