Resources Available to You

We have several resources on-site to facilitate family history research:

  • 28 internet capable computers with free access to Ancestry and Fold3. These sites hold digital copies of a wide range of records including the US Federal Census (1790-1940), Indian Census Rolls (1885-1940), naturalization records, passenger lists, death indexes, WWI and WWII draft cards, military pension records, and much more. For a listing of NARA microfilm and original records available on partner websites, please see Microfilm Publications and Original Records Digitized by our Digitization Partners.
  • Four microfilm readers including one machine attached to a computer that enables a researcher to adjust the image on the screen (zoom, rotate, brightness, ect) and print from microfilm. 
  • More than 30,000 rolls of microfilm covering multiple topics and record groups. For more information about our microfilm holdings, please Contact Us.
  • The Public Access Research Room is staffed by volunteers at various times throughout the week. These volunteers are a great resource if you need a little more guidance with your genealogical or historical research. They are here to help you with whatever you may need. 

    If you would like to ensure that you visit at a time when a volunteer is working, please email us at denver.archives@nara.gov or give us a call at (303) 604-4740.
