Dear Ms. Molloy,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located 5 series pertaining to pre-Civil War Navy service records. For access to and/or copies of these records, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC (RDT1) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additional information about pre-WWI personnel records is available on our website at https://www.archives.gov/veterans/military-service-records/pre-ww-1-records.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
