use the one at the top of page or the date listed by the names. Example at the top it
has Nov 30/39 but date on the name is jd 27th do I use the 30th or 27th for this name?
Hi @vsmith . jd means "joined" the military unit (not enlisted in/"joined" the Armed Forces). So since that is not an enlistment date, you would use the date at the top: Nov 30, 1939.
Per the citation by @LarryClark43 :
On the Muster and Roster Rolls, if the date is listed as unknown to I type unknown or do I mark it as Control Blank?
The dates on this project are a bit complicated. The instructions for the project state:
So depending on the batch you have the answer will be different. If the date next to the name is in the enlistment date column, that is the date you would use. If the date is in the remarks section and is not an enlistment date you would use the roster date from the top of the page. If the top of the page you are looking at does not have a date you are allowed to look in the reference images to find the date for that particular roster or roll.
I think I have only seen a couple of cases out of hundreds where I could not locate the date.
Hope this helps
Thank you for the information I did some of the dates wrong because of the jd date and hoping the
person who checks the batches will catch them. Sorry I didn't ask sooner.
You're welcome, @vsmith . Yes, the Reviewer should catch those and fix them.
