Military records for public search can be available for you today. Did you know public archives contain historical records that can help you find valuable information concerning your past? The National Archives system has plenty of historical information on previous military activities we well. If you are interested in finding information about you or someone you know, you can research some of these archive systems or contact us for more information.
If you find historical records in the system, you can request a copy of the records for yourself. There is an enormous amount of military records kept on microfilm rolls. After you purchase the microfilm copy from the government agency, library, or independent company, we can transfer your military records to a digital image by scanning the microfilm. An advantage of microfilm scanning is that you can then store the images on a computer to find information and print records. It can be many times easier to read information from a digital image than from a microfilm roll.
After the information on microfilm is digitized, we can also OCR the images for you. OCR means Object Character Recognition. OCR will allow you to search for some specific information that is on the military records by using the search option that is available on all free PDF viewers. You may be looking for one specific name within a document that contains hundreds of other names, either way an OCR’ed PDF document allows to do a search to find the name you want.
