The staff at the U.S. National Archives had some wonderful presentations and shared with the audience many of their record collections that are NOT ONLINE.
Be sure to have a pad of paper and a pencil with you as you watch these recordings, you will want to take notes of all the different records that are available and not widely known.
Many times in the recordings the staff states that if a patron wants to know more about the collections they can contact them. I would highly suggest that if a record collection is of interest to you, contact the particular U.S. National Archives branch that it is located and request an index or finding aid be sent to you.
These records are a treasure trove for the genealogist and it is fantastic that the U.S. National Archives took the time to share with us, through these recordings, just what unique records they have.
So, put on your jammies and your fuzzy slippers, pour yourself a cup of coffee or hot tea and ENJOY!!
REMEMBER: IT'S NOT ALL ONLINE, CONTACT OR VISIT AN ARCHIVE TODAY!
