THE NATIONAL ARCHIVES HAVE REOPENED AND WE'RE BACK IN BUSINESS!

Not sure what's available for YOUR ancestor?

You're in the right place!  We specialize in military records at the National Archives from the 1800s, and can help you look up what records might be available for your ancestor so you know what to order.

 Please note:  This is not the page to order records.  If you're ready to order, go here instead. 

This free lookup service covers the basic records (pensions, service records and bounty land).  If your look up request is submitted with limited background information to start with, or is more involved or complicated than these basic records, we have researchers who will still be able to help, but may have to charge a research fee to help find him in the records.  

PLEASE ANSWER AS MANY OF THESE QUESTIONS AS YOU KNOW THE ANSWER TO.  These questions were specifically chosen to help narrow down the right soldier.  It is next to impossible to look up a soldier with just a name and no other information to identify him.  Please help us out by telling us what you know of your soldier so we can help get you correct information.  Thanks!
