When Confederate Service Records are Unreadable or Incomplete

Compiled Military Service Records (CMSRs) for Confederate soldiers are online, but many of the images are so faint that they are unreadable.  In other cases, some pages seem to be missing from those online records.  In either case, there is a solution that is not well known. All surviving Confederate CMSRs were digitized by Fold3

Blazing fast service!

Gopher records is amazing! Astonishingly fast service, an easy on-line ordering system, reasonable pricing, and very attentive customer service. The Land Entry Case Files I ordered (probably) confirmed a theory I have, and opened up some new questions…as these documents often do. It was great getting the answers weeks (or months) before I would have

Gorgeous Scan Quality

I have ordered Bounty Land Applications from both NARA and now Gopher records. The difference in quality is astounding. The records recieved back from NARA are black and white scans of photo copies. The scans back from Gopher are high resolution and the true colors of the documents. I could not be more pleased! And

Highly Recommend!

I’ve ordered numerous civil war pensions and always received prompt service with excellent images which were easy to download. Also kept me posted on one that was not available at NARA in D.C. and the next steps they will conduct in trying to locate it which I really appreciate. Have referred to others and will

glad I found these guys

in one of my groups on facebook I had asked for suggestions/help on a so called brick wall on one of my ancestors who was in the Civil War- even though they couldnt find a lot of info, I was able to see the communications between his widow and the pension office- as a result

Fast and Efficient

Received my records request in four days. Infinitely better than going through NARA. Reasonably priced. Will be using again.

Fast services!! Easy ordering process!

I wish I had found this service prior to ordering several records from NARA. Gopher was *much* faster than ordering directly from NARA. It took a matter of weeks to process my order, rather than months (to over a year) that it took to receive orders from NARA. The rates are also very reasonable. I

Ease of Use

Gopher Records has been amazing. Turnaround times are much quicker than those provided by NARA for the same records and the prices are less expensive too. It’s truly a win-win situation as a curious researcher. In addition, there is an actual person to speak to instead of the black-box we are stuck with when requesting

Another great result

So glad I found this company! Great communication, fast response time, and reasonable prices. What a wonderful service for those of us unable to research in person. Thank you Gopher Records

Happy Customer!

I am so glad someone gave me GopherRecords for getting information from the National Archives!!! Gopher delivery of files can be described as a nanosecond compared to NARA’s service. The copies are clear, the website is easy to navigate, the prices are super reasonable, and communication with Gopher is outstanding. Every genealogist should use this
