National Archives at Boston
Please Note: Records of the U.S. Court of Appeals to be Relocated to Kansas City
All records series from Record Group 276, Records of the U.S. Court of Appeals, including records of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit currently housed at the National Archives at Boston, will be moved to the National Archives at Kansas City. Similar records are already located in the Kansas City area. The relocation will facilitate more efficient archival research and public access to these records.
Beginning on August 13, these records will be closed to researchers at the National Archives at Boston to prepare for the relocation. We anticipate that the National Archives at Boston will be closed to the public during the week of September 4-7 to accommodate the relocation.
Please know that this schedule is subject to change and this notice will be updated as needed.
We anticipate that these records will be available to researchers at the National Archives at Kansas City after October 1, 2018. You can check the status of the records by contacting the National Archives at Kansas City. Please allow for at least two business days advance notice.
