Minnesota Genealogy Society will present a webinar discussing the “The U.S. National Archives” at 8 p.m.

Sooner or later our research leads us to the treasures held in governmental archives. For federal government records in the United States that leads to the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). Researchers often use federal census, military and pension records, and passenger arrival records but these are only a fraction of the genealogically useful records in the custody of NARA. This webinar focuses on the Washington, DC area facilities, commonly called Archives I and II, finding aids, website, catalogs, access options and research tips. Some discussion covers the Regional branches of NARA, including the finding aids.
