List of records digitized by NARA’s digitization partners now online!

by on April 19, 2010


In response to many researcher requests, we have added a list of the records digitized by our digitization partners, Ancestry.com and Footnote.com, to our web site.  The list is arranged in alpha-numeric order by NARA microfilm publication number.  You can re-sort the list by microform publication title, partner, or record group by clicking on the appropriate column headings. Clicking on the titles in the list will direct you to the web sites of our partners. 

 Our digitization partners, Ancestry.com and Footnote.com, have digitized selected NARA microfilm publications and original records and made them available on their web sites for a fee.  Each partner allows free searches of some or all index terms for each title. Access to the digitized records on Ancestry.com and Footnote.com is available free of charge in all NARA Research Rooms, including those in our regional archives and Presidential libraries.

Angela and Marie – Thanks to you and others for requesting the list. I think it will be a useful resource for researchers.

Thank you! Thank you! thank you! I quick question…When I click on the link given in the blog I go to the list. At the top of the page the “path” shows NARA home leading directly to the digitization info. But when I go to the home, I do not see it anywhere. What am I doing wrong?

Claire – The link in the blog post will take you directly to the page containing the list (depending on your monitor you may need to scroll down a little to see the list). You can also find links to the list elsewhere on Archives.gov. If you go to the Archives.gov home page you can enter “digitization” in the search box on the top right corner of the home page. Click on the first link in the results list – Digitization at the National Archives. From this page there is link to the list. We have also added links to the list on the main research page (towards the bottom of the page), under the online research tools and aids page, and under the What’s New section on the main genealogy page.

Thanks, Rebecca. I see all of that. But the “path” line at the top of the page still shows:
Home [to] Digitization at the National Archives [to] List. Nothing appears between “home” and “Digitization at the National Archives.” Usually a path line would show which links from the home page got you to the list. (Most researchers will not find it through the blog.) Maybe that will be taken care of when the Web site gets redesigned.
Thank you, though, for the list and for the info.

Claire – Thanks for your feedback. I’ll pass your suggestion along to the web staff. However, as you said, we may have to wait for changes until the redesign.

Is it possible to send me a copy as an attachment to my email of my SF-50, I retired from OST (Office of the Special Trustee) in 2006. Thanks for you help!

Hello Ann – You can request a copy of your records from the National Personnel Records Center in St. Louis. You will need to send a written request to the Center. Detailed information about requesting civilian personnel records can be found on our web site at http://www.archives.gov/st-louis/civilian-personnel/public-services.html

Hi Heidi,

Records of overseas births are kept by the State Department. Being born on a military base does not change this. Here are some resources that might be able to help you obtain your birth certificate:

Documentation of U.S. Citizens Born Abroad: http://travel.state.gov/law/family_issues/birth/birth_593.html

How to Apply for a Certified Copy of a Consular Report of Birth Abroad: http://travel.state.gov/passport/get/first/first_825.html

There may also be proof of your birth in your dependent medical folder or your parent’s military service records.
Dependent Medical Folders (DMFs): http://www.archives.gov/st-louis/military-personnel/other-medical-records.html
Veterans and their Families: http://www.archives.gov/veterans/

Best of luck with your research,
Meredith

the link http://www.archives.gov/st-louis/civilian-personnel/public-services.html no longer works. What is the current link? other websites are still pointing to http://www.nara.gov.

Meredith D. (admin) April 17, 2012 at 5:26 pm

Hi Alison,

Thank you for letting us know about the broken link. Here is the updated link for more information about requesting Civilian Personnel Records at the National Archives in St. Louis: http://www.archives.gov/st-louis/archival-programs/civilian-personnel-archival/

Best of luck with your research,

A applied for a Consular Report of Birth Abroad for my father (deceased). He was born in 1911 in Rome, Italy. The State Department directed me to the National Archives, Archives I Reference Branch.

How do I go about trying to locate a consular report of birth, or get an official letter documenting no such report exists?

Thank you,
Mark

Meredith D. (admin) June 6, 2012 at 12:01 pm

Hi Mark,

The National Archives does hold some consular birth reports for the 1910-49 period. You can contact the Archives 1 Reference Branch via email at archives1reference@nara.gov. Please send the details of your request and we can research this more thoroughly for you. Additionally, the 1910-49 reports have been digitized and are available online via Ancestry.com or at all NARA facilities.

Thank you!
Meredith

Mark June 6, 2012 at 7:42 pm

Hi Meredith,

Awesome – thanks! Will do…

Thanks again,
Mark

Meredith D. (admin) June 7, 2012 at 10:53 am

Hi Mark,

An update to my previous comment – you will actually want to contact our Archives 2 reference section for consular birth reports from this period: archives2reference@nara.gov
The series description for these records can be found in our online catalog.

Best of luck with your research,
Meredith
