INDEXING

Volunteers are needed for several different tasks:

Indexers and arbitrators are needed to index the Compiled Service Records of Federal soldiers using the FamilySearch indexing App. The records are available now on the FamilySearch website, but are only searchable by name. We are doing a richer index of everything contained on the image. If you are not familiar with the FamilySearch indexing app, we will be glad to train you.

  • RESEARCH

Researchers are needed to locate rosters or some other reliable source of information for those units for which we are missing soldier names. It may help if you are familiar with research in that particular state.
