Excellent Research Service

I have used Gopher Records when I cannot get to the National Archives myself for Civil War research. The service is timely, comprehensive, and an excellent value for the researcher who cannot be on-site. Highly recommended!

Civil War Records

I heard about your service from a member of the DAR. She highly recommended your service is less expensive than other sources, you deliver in half the time and you are prompt in your replies. I found all of that to be absolutely true. I'll be using you again as I discover more records that I am in the need of. Thank you!

Bounty Land Application

I want to give a BIG THANK YOU to Gopher Records. The turnaround on my request for a Bounty Land Application was extremely fast, very pleased with their work and attention to detail. I highly recommend Gopher Records for all your National Archives needs. The price is substantially lower than what the Archives or others charge. Thank you! Charla Murphy

Civil War Pension Records

I was very frustrated with waiting for the National Archives to provide me with copies of two pension records. A friend told me about this awesome company that would be able to go locate them in a fraction of the time. I cancelled the request with NARA, submitted a request to Gopher Records and had the records in less than a week. The estimate they gave me to complete the work order was one month, so they successfully exceeded my exceptions with the quick service. I would absolutely use them again! In addition, I located a [...]

Outstanding Service!

Whether you are just wanting to learn about your ancestor or if you are doing serious research but don’t have the ability to make it to the archives yourself, do not hesitate to enlist the services of Gopher Records. Reasonable pricing, thorough and professional research, and courteous communication throughout the record retrieval process. Thank you and I won’t hesitate to come back.

My opinion of my first order from Gopher Records

I was referred to Gopher Records by a professional genealogist that I am associated with. I was very impressed with the fact that their prices for ordering Civil War pension records were nearly half the price that NARA has for their orders. Eventually, I sent in an order for the pension of my 4th great-grandfather, and once I paid for the pension I received online access to the record on the same day. Instead of having to wait nearly 90 days for a respone from the NARA, I received the pension nearly 3 weeks after I first ordered it. [...]

Super fast!

I couldn’t recommend Gopher Records enough. I recently heard about them via social media and I had a military file to order from NARA. Rather than wait almost a year (or more) for that file, I decided to try out Gopher Records. Boy am I glad I did. Gopher was extremely professional and delivered my record way earlier than the expected delivery date! I will definitely use them again in the future should I have any military records to order.

Again, Gopherrecords exceed expectations. I received the pension records in two days time. They are the quickest, cheapest and the most convenient way to obtain records. They have never disappointed and I will continue to use this amazing service.

I requested two separate pension records of United States Colored Troops through Gopherrecords. I was very surprised at how fast the turnaround time until receiving the files. Less than a week later the records were in my email. They helped to clear up many questions that remained from previous research. Gopherrecords is the quickest, cheapest and the most convenient way to obtain records that I have found to obtain the records that were required to complete research. A GREAT resource for any researcher.

This was my second information request to Gopher Records and once again it was a job well done! These records were available to me in one week. Thanks for a great job and keep up the good work. I would highly recommend Gopher services to anyone seeking records from the National Archives.
