From: "Whitney, James E, II, NLSOP" <jewhitney -at- att.com> Subject: [WHITNEY-L] Military Service Records and Pension Records at National Archives Date: Mon, 29 Jan 2001 11:53:00 -0500 Caution- Use of old forms at NARA Customer Services Center(inquire -at- nara.gov) no longer accepted! ----------------------------- Dear Customer:Recently NARA announced changes in the fees charged for copies of records, effective Nov. 13,2000. The NATF-80 series of reference forms that you have ordered have been redesigned to reflect the new prices and procedures, as well as to make them compatible with our order processing system. Until further notice, there is a limit of five (5) forms of any one type per individual request. Enclosed are the forms you ordere3d, subject to this limit. If you ordered NATF Form 80(Order for Copies of Veterans Records), please note that this form has been replaced by two new forms, the NATF Form 85 for pension records and the NATF Form 86 for military service records. After November 13, 2000, we can no longer accept reference requests on previous editions of NATF 80-series(80, 81, 82, 83, and 84). Please recycle or destroy all remaining copies of the obsolete forms. ----------------------------- I got this back from the NARA. It is a fee increase in the cost of requests. Of course I expect the turn around time will shorten. Yeah, and pigs will fly too! James E. Whitney, II
