“Register of officers whose services terminated prior to Jan. 1, 1858,” held by the NY State Military Museum, functions as a partial name index to Series 13728. Each entry in the register of pre-1858 Militia officers provides a reference to the page number(s) in “Register B” on which the name is found. The volumes in 13728 appear to be the same “Register B” that is referenced.
