Selected Summaries by Laurel...

These cards are on microfilm, I have abstracted the soldiers name, date of enlistment, unit, widow's maiden name, date of marriage if given and residence information of soldier and widow. There are also a series of numbers on the cards—SO (soldiers original, used when the soldier was an invalid), SC (soldier's certificate), WO (widow's original), WC (widow's certificate) and Bounty Land. The actual pension files have not been microfilmed and must be requested from the National Archives if you are visiting the Archives you can obtain a researcher card and request a maximum of 4 files per document pull (these are at set times throughout the day) or 24 files per day (a mistake in this case, because I couldn't copy 24 files by myself, I think I managed to copy 15)! You then view the files in a special room (second floor) into which you may bring only a pencil and paper. You may Xerox the files with approval of an Archivist—a large document scanner is also available. You can also sign up to use a bulk copier for one hour which I recommend as the files are quite large, the average length probably about 40 pages (it can be hard to copy a long file on the copiers in the research room on a crowded day and you are supposed to limit your time to 3 minutes when others are waiting). I am going to put an * in front of names that did not appear on the first list I sent out. These are all of the alternate spellings that I could find.
