Dear Mr. Winig,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
The Merchant Marine Personnel and Licensing Records in the custody of the National Archives at St. Louis (RL-SL) have not been digitized and are not available online
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from the RL-SL.
We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
