Map + Directions

Basic Directions

Original records

NARA's Pacific Alaska Region (Anchorage) has more than 9,000 cubic feet of archival holdings, including textual documents, photographs, maps, and architectural drawings, dating from about 1867 to the present. These archival holdings were created or received by the Federal courts and over 30 Federal agencies in Alaska. Federal law requires that agencies transfer permanently valuable, noncurrent records to NARA.

Subjects covered include Federal courts; land and resource management; agriculture; forestry; Native American affairs; weather observations; commercial shipping and commerce; roads, railroads, and other transportation; economic development; and military and naval activities.

Public programs include tours of the facility, exhibits, lectures, and workshops on genealogy, research in archives, and teaching history using archival documents. Groups and classes can be accommodated by special arrangement.

The Anchorage facility has extensive microfilm holdings of value for genealogy research, among them:

  • Federal population censuses for all States, 1790-1930 (including indexes for 1880,1900, 1910, and 1920);
  • over 500 census index books for the years 1790-1870, with some gaps;
  • military service records;
  • pension and bounty land warrant applications;
  • passenger arrival records;
  • Indian censuses;
  • naturalization records.
