Dear Ms. Cooke,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located one series Central Decimal Files, 1910-1963 in the General Records of the Department of State (Record Group 59). The file code to use to begin your research is “867n”. It can be further narrowed down depending on what type of consular correspondence you are seeking. Please discuss this with the Civilian Records staff of the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2). They will be pleased to make the finding aids and the RG 59 records available to you or your representative in the Textual Research Room located 8601 Adelphi Road, College Park, MD, near the University of Maryland--College Park campus. The Textual Research Room (Room 2000) hours are 8:45 a.m. to 5:45 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays. The RDT2 consultation room hours are 8:45 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays. No appointment is necessary. Prior to your visit, please consult College Park websites at https://www.archives.gov/dc-metro/college-park/, https://www.archives.gov/dc-metro/self-service-copying.html, and https://www.archives.gov/research/start/getting-started.pdf.
The Jerusalem Consulate files in the Records of the Foreign Service Posts of the Department of State (Record Group 84) ends in 1935 and begins again in 1948. Any correspondence received or sent between those years should be filed in the RG 59 Central Decimal Files.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
