This is a question for someone who has access to these microfilm rolls:"Index to the Compiled Military Service Records for the Volunteer Soldiers Who Served During the War of 1812. Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration. M602, 234 rolls."
I have access to www.ancestry.com's database of names on the index cards, however, I don't have access to the films themselves ... yet.
I want to know how much information the microfilmed index cards give for a specific group of soldiers:U.S. Volunteers, Rangers.www.ancestry.com's database only identifies the soldiers as:"Rangers, United States (or U.S.) Volunteers."In other words the name of the individual soldier's company is not given in the database; and my question is:Is the company of Rangers that the individual soldier served in listed on the microfilmed index card?
For example, I know that one Jonathan Denton served in Capt. Parmenas Beckes' Company of Rangers, U.S. Volunteers.www.ancestry.com only says that he served in the Rangers and I would like to know whether or not the microfilmed index card also specifies that he served in Capt. Parmenas Beckes' Company.
