      What is the average cost of a cash entry? Homestead File? Military bounty land file?

          A copy of the fee schedule to request these records from the National Archives can be found online at https://www.archives.gov/research/order/fees.  Land Records, which cover Homestead Entries and Cash Entries, cost $50.00 per case.  Military bounty files cost vary due to the potential size of the cases.  Depending on your request they can start at $30.00 and can run to over $80.00. Please keep in mind that the National Archives does not require you to pay for your copies up front, rather we will send you a quote first of what it will cost to make the copies.  And will only charge your credit card when you agree to the cost.
