How to Search on this Page
- To search for specific terms on this page, hold down the Control key (PC) or Command key (Mac) and push the F key.
- In the pop-up search box, type in what you are looking for.
For instance, you could search on key words such as "naturalization", "passport", "passenger", "draft", "pension" or "census" to easily find these records. Then hit the arrow or "Next" button.
- Keep hitting the arrow or "Next" to find all instances of the word on the page.
- You can also sort each column by numerical or alphabetical order. The default order arranges the list in alpha-numeric order by NARA microfilm publication number.
- Click on the titles to go directly to search the records on our partner's website.
Our digitization partners, Ancestry.com, Fold3.com, and Familysearch.org, have digitized selected NARA microfilm publications and original records and made them available on their web sites. The list below includes all microfilm publications and original records that have been either partially or wholly digitized by the partners. The list will be updated when additional materials are digitized.
Please note: Familysearch.org is a free site. Ancestry and Fold3 are both subscription services that allow free searches of some or all index terms for each title. Free access to Ancestry.com and Fold3.com is available in all Research Rooms at the National Archives, including those in our regional archives and Presidential libraries. Agreements with our partners are such that there will eventually be free access online to all these digitized records through the National Archives Catalog. As microfilm publications become available in the National Archives Catalog, we will link directly to them in the Publication Title column.
Some microform publications are listed twice for the same digitization partner. For these microform publications, our partners have split the publication into separate searches on their web sites. We listed the publication twice to provide you with a direct link to each search. For example, if you click on both entries for A1154 you will see that the first entry on the list directs you to a search of "U.S. Federal Census - 1880 Schedules of Defective, Dependent, and Delinquent Classes" and the second entry on the list directs you to a search of "U.S. Federal Census Mortality Schedules, 1850-1880".
Original records that have been digitized for which there is no microfilm, will have "Original records" listed in the microfilm publication number column.
If any problems are discovered with the links or a title is missing, please report the information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
