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

The library has a microfilm of the compiled service records of soldiers who served in the American Army during the Revolutionary War. See entry in the Author/Title catalog: United States. Record and Pension Office. Compiled service records of soldiers who served in the American Army during the Revolutionary War. (M881)

This microfilm publication reproduces the most comprehensive name index to American soldiers who served during the Revolution. The index also contains entries for several small series of Revolutionary War compiled military service records of sailors, members of army staff departments, and civilian employees--teamsters, laundresses, carpenters, and cooks--contracted to the American Army and Navy.

Each card of the index gives the name and unit of a soldier or civilian and sometimes his rank, profession, or office. The index may refer to more than one jacket envelope if a soldier served in more than one unit.

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 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.
