    1. [CO-CIVILWAR] Military research at the National Archives
    2. Kelley Bevis
    3. Hello. My name is Kelley -- I recently completed my Masters degree and am going to law school this fall here in Washington, D.C. School is expensive and I could use some extra money to pay for tuition and loans, so I am offering to do military research at the National Archives (service files, pension files, etc). Generally, a request for this kind of information takes the Archives several months, at a minimum, to process. I can retrieve them much faster and also give you someone to interact with instead of a government form. My fees are reasonable, intended to compensate me for my time, printing costs and postage for what I'll send back to you. The Archives offers extended hours once a month, so I would be doing research over the course of three days each month, and I am more than happy to send you a schedule. If you are interested, please just email me at texlabooks@gmail.com Take care. Kelley

    1. Military Research at the National Archives
    2. Kelley Bevis
    3. Hello. I'm a college grad student in Washington, DC. Recently, I have been doing some personal family research at the Archives, and realized that I could be doing this for people at a much quicker pace than the people at the Archives. Generally, a request received by the Archives takes several months, at a minimum, to be processed. So, being that grad school is expensive and I could use a little bit of help to pay some student loans, I am offering to do military research (service files, pension files, etc) at the Archives. The fee that I would be asking for would be reasonable, so as to compensate my time, printing costs and postage for what I will send you. If you are interested, please just email me at texlabooks@gmail.com Take care. Kelley
