A few days ago, I received a book in the mail, the likes of which I have never seen before. It is the "Stammrolle ehemaliger Angehöriger des sächsischen 8. Infanterie Regiments "Prinz Johann Georg" Nr 107." (Standort Leipzig), herausgegeben vom Königl. Sächs. Militärverein "107er" zu Leipzig: and contains information on nearly 1,800 former members of the Saxon IR 107. It was published in 1896 by the veterans organization.
What makes this book most noteworthy is that it contains biographical/military career infomation on all of the former members of the regiment beginning in 1867- to include NCOs and enlisted soldiers, as well as one-year volunteers.
Common wisdom holds that information on enlisted soldiers is not available- this book puts an intersting dent in that notion.
Should anyone desire information from this book, just let me know.
An example of what the book contains:
