Ancestry sure doesn't make it easy. I read three different
descriptions of that CD on Ancestry pages before I found this page;
"The records in this database were taken from Record Group 93 M246 in
the National Archives (a total of 138 rolls of microfilm). "
With the number it returned you might be able to determine what unit
the soldier was in by looking at
You'll want to get the reel to browse through as these records have a
lot of miscellaneous info that won't be indexed.
The reels can be rented or purchased from NARA, or Heritage Quest.
I'm almost certain the FHC's also carry them.
