Record Groups Without Descriptions

The record group that you are interested in does not have a description associated with it. This may be due to one of three reasons:

  1. The record group was created in anticipation of the transfer of archival records, and no transfer had been made at the time this guide was updated. This accounts for the following series of record group numbers:
    RG RG RG RG RG RG RG
    201
    271
    281
    289
    290

  2. The record group number is no longer in use. This accounts for the following record group numbers:
    RG RG RG RG RG RG RG
    189
    200
    282
    283
    285
    301
    332
    348
    356
    401
    421
    450
    491
    501


  3. The record group description is in preparation. If the record group you wish to consult does not have a description and it does not appear in any of the two categories above, contact the National Archives and Records Administration for further information. Remember to indicate the record group number in your inquiry.
