Dear Ms. Matthews,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located 42 series regarding Displaced Persons in Europe during the 1940s. All of these series are in the custody of the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2). The RDT2 staff will be pleased to make the finding aids to these 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.

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

I was able to find a number of DP registration cards for my family as they left Latvia.
