Notes

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

In order to locate the compiled service records of a soldier, the unit in which he served must be known, or located thru the use of an index.

The library has a state index on microfilm to these compiled service records of volunteer Union soldiers who served in organizations from the state of Kentucky. This index is listed at the end of this record.

This microfilm publication contains "...the compiled service records of Union soldiers belonging to units from the state of Kentucky. The compiled service records consist of a jacket-envelope for each soldier, labeled with his name, his rank, and the unit in which he served and typically containing (1) card abstracts of entries relating to the soldier as found in original muster rolls, returns, hospital rolls, descriptive books, and lists of deserters; and (2) the originals of any papers relating solely to the particular soldiers. There are cross-references for soldiers' names that appeared in the records under more than one spelling"--Introd.

"The compiled service records of soldiers belonging to units from the state of Kentucky are arranged according to an organizational breakdown ending with the regiment or the independent battalion or company. Under each unit the service records are arranged alphabetically by soldiers' surnames"--Introd.

"Preceding the jacket-envelopes for the individual soldiers in each organizational unit are envelopes containing record-of-events cards giving the stations, movements, or activities of the unit or a part of it, and sometimes information relating to its organization or composition. In addition, there occasionally are envelopes containing general notation cards giving information relating to the entire organizational unit that sometimes was not stamped on or filed with the card abstracts"--Introd.
