Could you please link the record or provide the name so we can look it up and see the full record in context?
Dear Ms. Proctor,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
Without knowing which record you are referring to, it is difficult to say for certain. However, we contacted the Illinois State Archives about a similar use of the PVTD abbreviation on their Illinois Civil War Muster and Descriptive Rolls Detail Report and were informed that “PVTD” was a transcription error. In that example, it should have been “REC’D” which is an abbreviation for “Received.” There may be the same transcription error with the record you are using. Fold3 should indicate from which institution they received the information in databases. You may wish to contact that institution with a link to the record to request a check of the original records.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
