Truncation and wildcard symbols are not supported.
Only the first page (file identification card from the U.S. Veterans Administration filing system) of each record has been indexed.
First and Last names of the serviceman are always indexed.
State of service is index, rather than the state in which the application was filed. Use caution when selecting "Service" as a search limit, because branch of service was not always indicated on the first page file card and was only indexed if listed there.
Ff file is a Widow's file (e.g., W.8844), the first and last names of the serviceman and the widow are indexed, and therefore searchable.
Pension files are indicated with a letter and file number: S for servicemen (e.g., S.39566), W for widow's applications (e.g., W.8844)
Bounty Land Warrants
Bounty Land Warrant applications are indicated with a B.L. Wt (e.g., B.L.Wt. 39108-160-55). The numbers indicate the warrant number, the number of acres of land granted, and the year they were granted, thus the above Bounty Land Warrant #39108 granted 160 acres to the serviceman in 1855.
Rejected Bounty Land Warrant claims are listed as B.L. Reg or B.L.Rej followed by the file number and year (either whole year or partial [1855 or 55]).
Widow's Bounty Land Warrant files are listed as W. B. L. Wt. followed by file number, acreage, and year granted.
If multiple applications exist for the same individual and/or dependents, the files were combined by the U.S. Veterans Administration and have thusly been indexed.
