Thank you for posting your question on History Hub.
The National Archives is the repository for the permanently valuable non-current records of the Federal Government. Although only 1-3% of the records created by the Federal Government are transferred to the National Archives, our holdings consist of hundreds of thousands of records, many of which may be of genealogical value. The vast majority of our records are not name-searchable.
For more information on conducting genealogical research within our records, please visit our webpage: https://www.archives.gov/research/genealogy.
We hope this information is helpful.
