Help is on the way

Confused by myriad record groups available? Don't know where to turn next?
"The National Archives (US) staff have prepared more than 160 pages of finding guides to assist researchers with their most common records. These guides are printed on various hues of colored paper. They can be found on a rack in the lobby once you arrive at the Archives.

The Mount Vernon Genealogical Society has also placed these finding aids online at http://mvgenealogy.org/NARA_Guides.html.

Whether planning a visit or not, these guides are a great resource for a better understanding and appreciation of the NARA holdings."

Happy family tree climbing!
