Military Records

Gopher Records is an excellent research service. I am a return customer and have recommended them to several others including a historical society and a small museum. Super pleased! Highly recommended.

Soldier bundle

Again, I really cannot say enough about the quality of the service that Gopher Records provides. Quick. Affordable. Gopher Records is a must have tool for your military research!

Civil War package I would absolutely recommend using gopher record's. Mater of fact I just ordered my 3 rd soldiers civil war records from gopher records . . I receive the records pretty fast 2-3 weeks . I can’t wait to explore my war of 1812 and revolutionary war ancestors .

Great service!

I had such a great experience requesting records through Gopher Records. They were professional, quick, and easy to communicate with. I highly recommend them to anyone who is looking to gather Civil War pension records, service records, and medical cards. I will definitely be using them again in the near future!

You cannot go wrong with Gopher

Bob's personal care, professionalism, turn around time, and highly knowledgeable advice far exceeded my expectations on every level. For several weeks I kicked around the idea of taking a chance on a request. In all honesty, but for no good reason, I was not optimistic that my investment with Gopher would amount to anything of sustenance. I had made records requests before with state and federal agencies, waiting months only to receive nothing or next to nothing with the two line note informing me that my investment was for the search not for results or further [...]

Record Retrieval

There should be no hesitation in using Gopher for your record needs- great communication, honest, and thorough.

Five star plus

The ordering process was terrific from start to finish, with great communication. The website instructions are brief and clear, so it couldn't be easier to upload soldier information and retrieve the files. The service and pension files arrived very quickly, and the images were excellent. All this for a very reasonable and affordable cost! Very glad to have found Gopher Records.

Rarely write reviews….exception is because of stellar service levels and Bob’s passion for excellence

Pursuing a life passion is only enhanced when you encounter "the best" in individuals serving the community. From start to finish I experienced a level of personalized care and professional attention to detail in Gopher Records. Bob has found his niche and makes what can be complicated, ...straight forward and simple. Communications, speed, technology, privacy and security all have been thought out and practiced likely over and over. The only way I know to sincerely thank is to Pay it Forward, pass to others the link to Gopher Records and share my [...]

Civil War Pension Record

I appreciate the great service in obtaining a Civil War pension for me. I needed to be sure I had the complete file and appreciate the efforts of Gopher Research in that!

Exceptional service

Fast and thorough. I received over 50pages of pension files documenting a dozen interviews of neighbors of my ggg grandparents who were attempting to receive their sons pensions. It is an amazing account of life in cincinnati in the 1880s. All of this within a week! Exceptional and I will be back for more records
