The project to extract the records of the 37th Regiment, U. S. Colored Troops is just getting started. We are currently extracting the descriptive rolls, which have records of all soldiers enlisted into the regiment. As each company is completed, the link to its records will be activated (colored blue). After the descriptive rolls are transcribed, the records of the officers, non-commissioned officers, deaths, discharges, deserters, transfers and any other records available will be transcribed. Finally, a master index will be created to all records.
A master index has been created to the regiment's descriptive books. This index contains hot links to all records pertaining to a specific soldier. Because of transfers within the regiment, there may be multiple index records for one individual, one for every company in which he served. Multiple index records may also exist where there were more than one entry in a category, such as sergeants. The existence of a record is indicated by "YES" in the column for that record. Click on the "YES" and you will go directly to that record for that person. Click on the "BACK" button in your browser to return to the place you were in the index. Some index records contain multiple surnames separated by a "/". These indicate that significant differences in the spelling of a soldier's surname exists within the records. In these cases, there may be multiple index records for that soldier in which each surname is listed first.
