Records Heading West to St. Louis

by on June 26, 2012


The following post is by guest bloggers Rebecca Warlow, Description and Digitization Supervisor, and Ann Cummings, Supervisory Archivist for Textual Records.

At the DC-Area Researchers Forum in November we announced that some records
would be moving from the National Archives at College Park to the National
Archives at St. Louis in 2012.  The time has come for the move to St. Louis to
begin.

The records listed below are being transferred to St. Louis and
will be unavailable for research while they are being
transferred:
