If you have been debating about ordering Military records from the National Archives because of the cost, you may want to do it soon. I just received an email from the War of 1812 list serve that prices are going to rise dramatically next month. The cost of ordering a complete transcript of a Civil War pension is currently $37 but a proposed increase to $125 is in the works. I will admit I have been unable to confirm this information but I decided to order my ancestors Civil War pension today. I ordered it on line and it only took about 5 minutes. The file will arive by snail mail.
