Historical records

    Archival Research is a service specializing in locating, copying and digitizing archived historical records of any media for a variety of clients. Our work ranges from simply finding and copying a few pages of records to long-term research projects.

   We conduct research to find the archival records that respond to your request, digitally scan or photograph them, and can often deliver them to you within 24 hours.

   Accessible archived historical records include United States and Russian intelligence, military, diplomatic and civilian records as well as German records captured at the end of WWII. US and Russian records date back at least to the late 1700s and through both World Wars, the Cold War until the present.

   Through this site, research can be carried out by Jeremy Bigwood in the Washington DC-area or Svetlana Chervonnaya in Moscow-area archives – or in both simultaneously - making Archival Research the essential service for WWII and Cold War research.

    Some presently classified records held by US and other governments as well as the United Nations can be declassified and obtained through open records mechanisms such as the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and Mandatory Declassification Review (MDR) processes in the United States.
