    Seeking US Army Division records

    J Miller Newbie

      Will NARA at College Park copy US Army division combat records (RG 407) or microfilm onto  a DVD?  Do you have a specific point of contact who can talk me through it through direct contact?  Thank you.

          Hello Mr. Miller,

           

          College Park, MA NARA are shutdown due to the pandemic and are currently not providing any type of extensive search and quoting cost for reproduction. In the days before the pandemic you could submit a quote to an email and they would respond to you with what the cost are, and if you wanted an electronic format or DVD. I cannot remember the email but I'm sure someone  here will know.

            Dear J. Miller,

             

            Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

             

            Under normal circumstances, you may order paper or electronic copies of National Archives records such as the World War II Operations Reports, 1940-1948 in the Records of the Adjutant General's Office, 1917-1985 (Record Group 407) for a fee but the National Archives does not offer microfilming services and permanently has suspended making microfilm copies of its existing microfilm publications.  Please see How to Obtain Copies of Records and NARA Reproduction Fees as of April 20, 2018 for more information. To initiate a request for copies of the World War II Operations Reports, you would email the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) at Archives2reference@nara.gov. Reproductions of all of the records in the custody of RDT2 require a page count. Since the staff is working remotely, RDT2 is unable to provide a quote for reproductions on a NATF Form 72 at this time.

             

            Please note that the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) has suspended reproduction and digitization services until further notice due to COVID-19. Orders will not be serviced until operations can resume safely. We apologize for any inconvenience. Updates to NARA’s operations in response to public health crises are posted to https://www.archives.gov/coronavirus.

             

            We hope this is helpful.
