    Where might I find loading manifests for glider missions during World War II?

      Hi, I was looking for any suggestions/information as to what type of records (eg, morning reports, after action reports) might contain loading manifests for gliders used by the 82nd Airborne during World War II. I do know the Troop Carrier Group/Squadron units (as well as the unit of the 82nd and possibly the glider numbers) for the specific campaigns that I am interested in. From the little I know, I think these manifests were kept by the glider pilots?  Is that correct? And that they are very difficult to find. Any suggestions would be welcome. thank you all for your help, joan
