Microfilm of original records in The National Archives, Washington, District of Columbia.

"Except for the Florida Infantry, the compiled service records to which this index applies are not on microfilm"--Military Service Records, p. 164.

In addition to this publication, there are also indexes for the soldiers who served in each state militia unit ...and a single index for the soldiers serving in all U.S. volunteer units (Puerto Rico volunteers not included). The library has two state indexes composed of cards that duplicate ones reproduced in this microfilm publication, and are arranged alphabetically by name of soldier. These two state indexes are Louisiana (M240) and North Carolina (M413). See Author/ Title catalog: United States. Adjutant General's Office. Index to compiled service records of volunteer soldiers who served during the war with Spain in organizations from the state of Louisiana, 1898- 1899. Also see another entry in the Author/Title catalog: United States. Adjutant General's Office. Index to compiled service records of volunteer soldiers who served during the war with Spain in organizations from the state of North Carolina, 1898-1899.

This microfilm publication contains "...an alphabetical card index to the compiled service records of volunteer soldiers in the war with Spain. Each index card gives the name of a soldier, his rank, and the unit in which he served. Some cards also refer to miscellaneous personal papers. There are cross-references to names that appeared in the records under more than one spelling"--Introd

"The compiled service records to which this index applies consist of a jacket-envelope for each soldier, labeled with his name and containing (1) card abstracts of entries relating to the soldier as found primarily in original muster rolls and returns, but occasionally in other records such as pay vouchers, and (2) the originals of any papers relating solely to the particular soldier"--Introd.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on FamilySearch.org include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.
