Prompt, accurate and a great value

I order records from Gopher Records several times a month. Their work has proved invaluable for my research. The timeliness of their responses and the fair price makes it easy for me to go back to them again and again. Highly recommend them for your research needs!

Pension files

This service is priceless! Thank you, Bob, for the pension files that I have ordered. As always, the service was fast and the quality of the reproductions was outstanding.

Wonderful service

This is my second Civil War Pension record request through Gopher Records. It was very easy to submit the request, each one was done in a timely manner and the scans are perfect. Without them I would never have been able to access these records which have been crucial to my research. I highly recommend Gopher Records!

Above and Beyond Service!

When I asked for a record from Washington D.C. and it turned out that it was actually in St. Louis at the NPRC, Bob went above and beyond to secure those records for me. Records that in the past have taken months and months to obtain, Bob got to me in a couple of weeks! Excellent, fast, knowledgeable, and friendly!

Quality Service

Gopher Records provides excellent service at a reasonable rate. They are good communicators, and they provide excellent scans of the documents you order. I would absolutely order from them again.

Civil War Pension

This was my first time using Gopher Records and it could not have been a better experience. The file I needed was not in DC and Bob was able to track it down at the Veterans Administration...he even did the Freedom of Information Act request for me. I have no experience ordering from the VA and would have been totally lost. The next time I need a record, I will not hesitate to use Gopher Records.

Excellent service, will use again.

I have ordered two military pension files through Gopher Records and been very impressed with their service. The first pension file was received within about a week of the order's placement, much sooner than the estimate given on the website. The second pension file proved more difficult to obtain, but Gopher Records went above and beyond to find it and reproduce it for me. The PDF files provided by Gopher Records have clear images and are easy to navigate. I look forward to using this service again for military pension files connected to other direct [...]

Bounty Land Record

I couldn't find my soldier's name on the Fold3 index for a bounty-land warrant application file. Bob confirmed the index is incomplete (Fold3 is up to the letter L). I was happy to receive the file, I was afraid it was lost. Excellent service once again! Highly recommended!
