NGS Research in the States: District of Columbia


Given the scope of records housed in DC, Research in the District of Columbia is a welcomed and an invaluable guide for new and seasoned genealogists. It offers a detailed overview of the many repositories and records for family historians researching ancestors who may have lived in DC as well as anyone for whom a federal record may exist such as

  • someone who served in the military,
  • an employee of the federal government,
  • a prisoner of war,
  • someone convicted in federal court, or
  • immigrants who applied for citizenship
