    Seeking information about Post Office investigations

    Dean Chiotti Wayfarer

      If a Star Route Contractor disappeared, on the job, would the Post Office investigate?

          Dear Mr. Chiotti,


          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!


          We searched the National Archives Catalog and located 19 series related to investigations and 24 series related to Star Routes in the Records of the Post Office Department (Record Group 28) that may contain some information related to your research. These records have not been digitized. Please contact the National Archives at Washington, D.C. - Textual Reference (RDT1) at archives1reference@nara.gov with questions about these and similar records.


          If you are able to share any additional information such as the time period or location you are interested in, then we may be able to direct you to additional relevant resources. You may also use the National Archives Catalog to search for descriptions of other records related to your research. The Advanced Search feature lets you narrow your results by Record Group (e.g. Record Group 28), time period, type of record, and more. Some of the records may be digitized and be available online in the Catalog. For assistance with any non-digitized records, please contact the National Archives reference unit listed in each Catalog description (e.g. RDT1).


          You may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgment as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT1 or other NARA reference units. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience as we balance mission-critical work and the safety of our staff during the pandemic.  Please check NARA’s web page about COVID-19 updates for the latest information.


          We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
