National Archives at San Francisco, Exhibitor at Family History Day

Please welcome the National Archives at San Francisco as an exhibitor at Family History Day at the Californi State Archives.

The National Archives at San Francisco, located in our San Bruno facility, has more than 55,000 cubic feet of archival holdings dating from 1850 to the 1980s, including:
  • Textual documents
  • Photographs
  • Maps
  • Architectural drawings
These archival holdings were created or received by the Federal courts and more than 100 Federal agencies in northern California, Guam, Hawaii, Nevada (except Clark County), American Samoa, and the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands. Federal law requires that agencies transfer permanently valuable, noncurrent records to the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).

Among the subjects covered are Chinese exclusion and immigration, the development of Pearl Harbor and mainland coastal fortifications, former World War II defense sites, public land use, national forests, migrant labor camps, and tribal history.

The National Archives at San Francisco has many resources for genealogists including:
  • Getting Started
  • Genealogy Guides
  • Genealogy Tools
  • Tools for Genealogists
  • Free online websites
Stop by the National Archives exhibit at Family History Day and learn more about their holdings and services.  Maybe you can grow your family tree in San Bruno.
