Research at the U.S. National Archives, Washington, DC
I would like to be of assistance to anyone who would like material pertaining to their family genealogy. While engaging in my own personal genealogical research on Indiana and Tennessee, I realize what an asset it is to be located near the primary National Archive that has original information no other archives have in the U.S. - I have obtained documents and information about members of my family tree from military records of the Revolutionary War, War of 1812, and Civil War, as well as a host of other primary sources at the National Archives, material such as:
- U.S. Census, 1790-1920
- Claims for Pensions & Bounty Land, 1775-1916 (for military veterans)
- Military Service Records, 1775-1903 (including Volunteer Soldiers,
Union and compiled Confederate Civil War Records)
- Passenger Lists, 1820-1954 (Customs & Immigrations, including Canada)
- Passport Applications, 1791-1926
- Land Records, 1800-1974 (in the public land states)
- Indian Records, 1830-1940
- Other documents pertaining to historical events
I can provide service to those who would like such information (copies of available original documents, records, or otherwise) at reasonable prices as I live in Washington, DC and have ready access to information in the U.S. National Archives, much of which is not available in county, state, or even regional national archives.
My particular period of search offerings would be
for the 18th and 19th centuries, with a few exceptions.
Some searching available at the D.A.R. and Library of Congress.
