On Behalf Of Suzanne Russo Adams

In conjunction with the announcement about the NARA/TGN digitization agreement [listed above] I was just made aware of a page on that lists all of the NARA series and films that are currently in databases on Ancestry.

If you scroll past the search template you will see a table that lists the NARA series #, the NARA Collection Title, the Ancestry Database Title and the number of film reels and/or fiche in that collection. I think this will prove very useful for understanding which NARA records are currently on the Ancestry website.

I am told this page will be updated as more NARA titles are added.
