Someone helping Virginia Crilley with the TAYLOR COUNTY Confederate History gave this information which probably would apply to every GA COUNTY..

"When the Taylor County militia was re-organized in late ‘63 early ‘64, eligible men and boys were duly recorded (by name, age in years and months, and listing whether they owned a rifle or shotgun, its condition, and whether they owned a horse and tack).

These rosters are organized by GMD (Ga. Militia District), just like the 1860 Census, so are easily searched. They are on microfilm at the Ga. Dept. of Archives and History (microfilm series 245, reel is either #9 or #10 [alphabetical by county]). You may wish to obtain them from GDAH (prob. costs $10-15, max), and copy onto the Web page.

Typically, a complete county roster comprises no more than 5-10 pages.

Anyone wishing the Compiled Military Service Record of a Georgia soldier can obtain it from the GDAH, simply by giving the soldier’s name—they’ll find it in their Index, then look up (alpha by regt.) on microfilm, and copy the records. It’s a 10-minute process, and they do it all the time. They can do it for anyone who served in Rucker’s Company ["Taylor Infantry"] of the 5th State Guard."

Most veterans at the time of discharge are advised to file their DD Form 214, Discharge form in the county courthouse where they reside, this is usually a free service and the certified copies provided are as good as the original for the purposes of processing federally guaranteed loans, VA loans and Disability claims, etc.

Many counties file them with Birth, Marriage, Divorce and Death records.

This document lists the periods of service, place of enlistment or commissioning, date of birth, SSAN if one exists, place of discharge, last known address at time of discharge, medals awarded.

Many states have a veteran’s affairs office as well that may assist you in obtaining military records.

The National Personnel Records Center (NPRC), a branch of the National Archives and Records Service is the official government repository for personnel records of former members of the U.S. military and former civilian employees. The facility housing military records is located at 9700 Page Boulevard, St. Louis, MO. 63132.

The key to reconstructing military data is to get enough specific information from the veteran to allow the Center personnel to search the available alternate sources. The information normally required is:

1. Full name used during service

2. Branch of service

3. Approximate dates of service

4. Service number

5. Place of discharge

6. Last unit of assignment

            7. Place of entry into service
