Here is a link to the work I am attempting to reference. Open link and scroll down to the yellow highlighted area for the specific section I need – 533-101.

o Title – Title of the section you are referencing. “Volunteer” defined
o Title Number – Number of the entire title or section which in your case is 29.
o Source Name Abbreviation – C.F.R.
