Revolutionary War Muster Rolls (Military Records Collection, 2017) Multimedia CD – November, 2000
Top Customer Reviews
It has fields for Name, Rank, Unit, company and Muster roll number.
However the Unit and company fields are blank for all 400,000+ records, and there is no information about the rolls.
There is a Roll rec and roll box field. Without any definition. All records have "246" in the Roll_rec field. And the number in the Roll_box field could be a random number for all the use it is. (presumably you can use this number to petition for information from the National archives, so maybe this serves as a poor index)
There are no dates.
I was hoping to draw some information about where and when my ancestors served.
Asside from not finding the primary ancestors I was looking for, the ones that I found weren't useful because there is no context.
For example there are 30 entries for John Carter, ranging from Private to Captain including at least one ensign. There is no way to tell which, (if any) of them is the one I am descended from.
