    Record Request about Civil War Personnel Files

    Newbie

      I was informed yesterday by email that records I requested  could not be located. The email address is a no reply email address. Its amusing to see that willingly provide you with the full snail mail address in the same email. "You will receive an annotated paper copy of your original request explaining why we were unable to find the requested record."  Is this going to be sent by email or snail mail ? Is there way to speak to someone directly ?

       

      NARA did not find a file for the person I was trying to research, a Union Civil War Veteran. I have the pension record for this person. This person did have an alias so I have submitted a new request.  I would like to know if there were records for anyone who may have served with this person, but I don't know how or who to ask.
