NARA's Pacific Region (San Francisco) holds 50,000 cubic feet of original records generated by Federal courts and agency field offices within our region from the 1850's to the 1970's. Our region covers northern and central California, Nevada (except Clark County), Hawaii, American Samoa, and the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands. We also have a large collection of National Archives microfilm, including all extant Federal population census schedules from 1790 to 1920. Our limited staff resources do not allow for extensive research; instead we provide assistance to people conducting their own research using our records.
