Starting Sept. 30, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
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.
