Dear Mr. Duffield,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the Access to Archival Databases (AAD) and located the Records About Japanese Americans Relocated During World War II, 1942-1946 in the Records of the War Relocation Authority (Record Group 210) that, Ms. Brooks has noted, contains 1 file for Jiro Onuma. More information about the series Records about Japanese Americans Relocated During World War II is available in the National Archives Catalog.
Next, we located the series World War II Japanese Internee Cards, 1941-1947 in the General Records of the Department of Justice (Record Group 60) that includes a Japanese Internee Card for Jiro Onuma. These records have not been digitized. Please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) at email@example.com for access to and information about these records.
Since Jiro Onuma was held at the Tanforan Assembly Center according to the AAD file, we located 3 file units and 101 items in Record Group 210 that have been digitized and may be viewed online in the Catalog. For any question about the records, please the National Archives reference unit listed in each Catalog description.
Plus, we located the series Records of Japanese-American Assembly Centers, ca. 1942 - ca. 1946 and the series Copy of the General Correspondence of the Assembly Branch, 1942-1943 in the Records of U.S. Army Defense Commands (World War II) (Record Group 499) that contain records related to the Tanforan Assembly Center. These records have not been digitized. Please contact RDT2 with any questions you might have about them.
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 RDT2 and other NARA reference units. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
