Civil War Muster Roll Look-ups
Posted by: Wayne O. Cunningham Date: May 24, 1999 at 06:36:53
  of 412

I have Civil War muster roll information for many of the different spellings and misspellings of the surnames of LOUZADA, LOUSADA, LUSADDER, LUZADER, LUZADDER, LEWSADER, LEWZADER, etc. This information contains, name, rank, regiment, company, sometimes middle initial, microfilm roll number, etc. This is a must for requesting military, and pension info. from the National Archives. Pension information can be especially helpful as it can show addresses, names and birth dates of dependants, maiden name of wife, date and place of inlistment and discharge. There seems to have been just as big of a paper chase back then as there is today, and the NARA will send you copies of all of the records upon request. Request forms at, http://www.nara.gov/research/ordering/ordrfrms.html
