Order an I.D.P.F. 


We offer access the individual deceased personnel files of U.S. veterans which are housed at the National Archives. The  I.D.P.F.'s are essential for researching the military service of individual veterans who were killed or died in the service.  Due to the impact of the 1973 fire at the National Archives many military service records of individual veterans were destroyed. The I.D.P.F.'s can be used as a tool for reconstructing the service history of veterans who were killed in action or died during the service. An I.D.P.F. usually contains information on the service of the individual veteran, details about the disposition of the deceased veteran's remains, and correspondence with the family regarding the burial of the veteran. For those wanting to carry out genealogical research of a veteran who died in the service the I.D.P.F. is a vital tool for uncovering details about the service history, death and burial of the veteran. Fill out the request form below to order the I.D.P.F. of your veteran.

The process 

Our military research specialists are on site at the National Archives. We will locate your veteran's I.D.P.F. in person and scan the entire I.D.P.F. page by page. We can have most I.D.P.F.'s ready within 1-2 weeks. We scan every page in your veteran's individual deceased personnel file in high resolution so that you can see the original paperwork and correspondence in your veteran's I.D.P.F. exactly as they appear in their original form. When we have your veteran's I.D.P.F. ready we will send an invoice to your email address. You can pay this using a credit/debit card or Paypal if you prefer. Once the invoice is paid we will send the scanned I.D.P.F. of your veteran right to your email address.
