Pension information

Gopher Records located and were able to obtain the pension information for my 2nd great grandfather, which provided a wealth of information to our family. It was necessary to access through the freedom of information action and I am greatly appreciative. Thank you.

Going the extra mile

I appreciate the service very much and found Gopher Records to be very helpful in my last successful request. To pursue receiving the records required submission of a FOIA request. They told me that it may take a while and might not be successful, but just the fact they knew what steps were needed and diligently followed up was so beneficial. Happily in my situation, the request worked and I was able to get a copy of the pension record! I highly recommend Gopher Records. They work with you through every step, keeping you [...]

Civil War Pension Records

The records retrieved by Gopher Records are fantastic! The pension file contained 304 pages and I received digital copies of them all. The genealogical information I'm extracting is very helpful with my research and I will be using Gopher Records again very soon!

Amazing Service

I am forever grateful for Gopher Records! I had a request for my ggg grandfather’s pension records. It became difficult to track them down because the government wasn’t really sure where they put them. Gopher Records stayed on it and tracked them down. They were so friendly and helpful throughout the process. I highly recommend using them for your records research!!

Speedy and more than expected

I was looking for Civil War service records. I received those and records of a multiyear struggle to get a widow's pension. Dozens of affidavits detailing his service. How did they keep track of all that paperwork in the 19th century?

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!

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 [...]
