We searched the National Archives Catalog and located a series Files of Suspect Cases Sent to Special Agents for Investigation, 1925-1935 in the Records of the U.S. Customs Service (Record Group 36) that pertains to smuggling alcoholic beverages into the U.S. via New Jersey & New York. For access to this series, please contact the National Archives at New York (RE-NY) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also in the Catalog, we located 3 series General Records, 1922-1942; Seized Vessel Case Files, 1926-1935; and Scrapbook Related to Rum Running, 1930-1931 in the Records of Coast Guard (Record Group 26) that may contain information about New Jersey. For access to these series, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) via email at email@example.com.
Additionally, we located a series titled Docket of Ship Seizures in Prohibition Cases, 1923-1927 in the General Records of the Department of Justice (Record Group 60) that may contain information about vessels seized in New Jersey. For access to this series, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
