Place of Enlistment taken from the Remarks Column

How to Index Multiple Surnames

Place Names - If the place name is not in the lookup list, please add it here.

The names of forts go in the Enlistment Town or City field
The names of territories go in the Enlistment State field.

Military Unit - Hidden Field: We no longer index the military unit. If you have a batch that was indexed before the change, the field will be hidden and you will need to unhide the field and carefully arbitrate it. It can be unhidden in two ways:
1-Click View/Organinze Fields and unhide the field or
2-Try to submit the batch. This will unhide the field.
