United States—Enlisted and Officer Muster Rolls and Rosters,
Normally I would just look for the corresponding date in the reference images and be done with it. However, I may be over thinking this, so I want to be sure. The year is listed as 192. When looking through the reference images I see the year 1912. Naturally I want to put that as the year on my batch. Here is where I hesitate. When looking at my batch, I see one of the enlistment dates as (Jan 1-13). This is for Henry E Fessenden. This indicates to me that this man was enlisted in the year 1913.
I would feel more comfortable indexing the year as 19?2 fixing it from 192?. For those without an enlistment date. Also want to confirm that those with enlistment dates will have that date for their record instead of the date at the top of the page.
So some input would be nice. Want to be sure I am making the right call and before submitting. Thanks!
