The National Archives and Regional Centers

In addition to the National Archives in Washington, D.C., there are currently 13 Regional Archive Centers located in various cities around the country. The regional centers all have United States census data and a variety of other research materials. There is no inter-center loan, so you must go to the regional center that has the records that you need to search. If you have a very specific request, you may be able to get a photocopy of the record instead. In addition, the National Archives has a microfilm rental program for census records.

In addition to microfilm reading rooms and limited research assistance, many regional centers offer a variety of services, including genealogy workshops, exhibits, films, and group tours. Select one of the topics below to get addresses and more complete information about the National Archives in Washington D.C. or one of the regional centers. You can also visit their Web site for more information.
