Dear Ms. Pixley,
Thank you for posting you request to History Hub!
The website of the German Budestag has an article about political parties of the Weimar Republic, to include the National Socialist German Workers’ Party (popularly known as the Nazi Party). Although the German government uses .de instead of .gov, that is a government website. Additional articles on their website include The Weimar Republic (1918 - 1933) and National Socialism (1933 - 1945).
Likewise the website of the Municipal Museums of Nuremberg, affiliated with the City of Nuremberg, has articles about National Socialism. Again, they use .de instead of .gov because they are German.
The Library of Congress has online the official proceedings of the trial of the major war criminals (The Blue Series), documentary evidence and guide materials from that trial (The Red Series), the official condensed record of the subsequent trials (The Green Series), and a final report on all the war crimes trials held in Nuremberg, Germany, from 1945 to 1949. Many of these publications give information about the history, organization and activities of the Nazi Party, particularly volumes 1 and 2 of Nazi Conspiracy and Aggression.
The Library of Congress also has a number of other items its collections on the subject headings of the Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei, Nazis and Hilter, Adolf.
The Holocaust Encyclopedia, published by the U.S. Holocaust Museum, has a number items and articles articles on the Nazi rise to power. Although a .org site, the museum is affiliated with the U.S. government.
The Department of State has online the publication series Foreign Relations of the United States. A search of these for Hitler, NDSAP, “National Socialist”, and Nazi comes up with a number of historic documents relating to the United State government’s interest in the development of the Nazi Party. For example you can see this series of documents on the increasing strength of the National Socialist Party in 1930.
We hope this information helpful. Best of luck in you research!

Dear Pam Pixley:
In addition to the suggestions from Jason Atkinson, you may wish to review the finding aid for the German Captured Documents Collection, available on microfilm in the Manuscript Reading Room of the Library of Congress. The collection consists of German documents captured by American military forces after World War II and may be relevant to your research.
Good luck on your project!
