Dear Ms. Burnett,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Muster Rolls of U.S. Navy Ships, Stations, and Other Naval Activities, 1/1/1939 - 1/1/1949 in the Records of the Bureau of Naval Personnel (Record Group 24) that include the muster rolls of the Long Beach Naval Station. We also located the Muster Rolls and Personnel Diaries of U.S. Navy Ships, Stations, and Other Naval Activities, 1/1/1949 - 12/31/1971 in Record Group 24 that include the muster rolls of the Long Beach Naval Station. Some of these records have been digitized and are available for viewing using the Catalog. For more information about the non-digitized records, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at email@example.com. Please note that the Muster rolls/Personnel Diaries for 1971 utilize social security numbers as service numbers and are subject to privacy restrictions.
Additionally, we located 23 series in the Records of the Bureau of Yards and Docks (Record Group 181) that pertain to the Long Beach Naval Station or Shipyard which may be useful. For more information about these non-digitized records, please contact the National Archives at Riverside (RW-RS) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Plus, we located Station Journals, 1973 - 1980 in Record Group 181 that pertained to the Long Beach Naval Shipyard. For more information about these non-digitized records, please contact RDT2.
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 RW-RS. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
