NARA Archives I Adds Saturday Record Pulls in July
Posted by Diane

Great news for those taking research vacations this month to the National Archives and Records Administration in Washington, DC, called Archives I.

Archives I is starting a pilot program to “pull” paper records (retrieve them from storage for viewing in the Research Room) on Saturdays during July.

The Saturday pull times are 10 a.m., 11 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. Previously, staff did not pull any records on Saturdays. (Note that Archives II in College Park, Md., isn't participating in the pilot program.)

Weekday pull times are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m., 11 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, there’s an additional pull at 3:30 p.m.

Researchers at the archives need to fill out and submit a Reference Service Slip for each requested record, which staff will retrieve at the next pull time. Without Saturday pulls, weekend researchers have to submit their requests early, or limit themselves to using microfilm, which is self-service.

For information on researching at the National Archives in Washington, DC, see its online guide.

You can use many National Archives resources at home through Archives.org. Learn how to make the most of this site from our National Archives Web Guide, available from ShopFamilyTree.com.

Thanks for the heads up! This will greatly impact researchers who are worried about fighting the 100+ degree weather and overcrowded metro rail cars during the commute the next few days.
