Many of the records refer to MA01, "Massachusetts Soldiers and Sailors in the 
War of the Revolution."  While the inclusion of the militia regiments was fairly
straightforward, there were 15 continental line regiments at the battles whose 
records do not specifically list Saratoga battles information.  However, the 
national archives confirm that the persons included were there during the 
battle dates.  Sometimes the company commander listed was toward the end
of the enlistment period, not the one at the time of the battles.  The additional 
information in each record usually indicates who the Captain was in 1777. If the
enlstment period is in both the main file and in the additional information, then
the one in the main file is at the time of the battles, the other later in the
period.
