More Post Office Department Records

The records of the Post Office Department (Record Group 28) can be useful for learning about ancestors who were postal employees, the communities in which they lived, and, of course, the operation of the mail system. As a part of NARA’s ongoing mission to provide greater access to the records in its custody, staff at the National Archives Building in Washington, DC, continue to add descriptions for RG 28 record series to the online National Archives Catalog. Here’s a list of some 133 record series for which descriptions were added to the Catalog in recent months.

  1. Thank you for this post Claire. I need to make Post Office research a higher priority. My California great-great-grandmother was a rural postal carrier, her brother-in-law was [conveniently] the Postmaster and my husband’s Nebraska great-great-grandfather was a Postmaster.
