The "Rolls and Lists" description of this category can be misleading in some cases. Where some of the collections are lists that may be leaner in detail, some of the records in this category can include helpful information like birth date and place, marital status, names of spouse and/or parents, religion, rank, military unit, residence, any injuries sustained, and other details related to military service. Injury and casualty lists may include the circumstances, and prisoner of war records can tell you whether your ancestor died, escaped, was paroled, exchanged or released, and when.
This category includes a wide variety of military records, including muster rolls, enlistment records, military directories, prisoner and casualty lists, records from veterans’ homes, and published extracts and compilations.
The information included in these records varies depending on the collection, so check the descriptions for each collection for more information.
