Mission Statement

The National Archives and Records Administration ensures, for the Citizen and the Public Servant, for the President and the Congress and the Courts, ready access to essential evidence.

Description

NARA's Southeast Region in Atlanta has about 80,000 cubic feet of archival holdings dating from 1716 to the 1980s, primarily textual records but also maps, photographs, and architectural drawings. These records were created or received by the Federal courts and over 100 Federal agencies, and are unique evidence of the impact of Federal government policies and programs in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. Federal law requires that agencies transfer permanently valuable, noncurrent records to NARA. Among the subjects included are: the Vice Admiralty Court of the Province of South Carolina, the evolution of Federal courts, Constitutional rights, the Civil War and reconstruction, economic development, business, organized crime, invention, the arts, censorship, World Wars I and II, the New Deal, and space exploration. Historic names in the files include Wernher Von Braun, Andrew Johnson, David Lilienthal, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Andrew Young. In the spring of 2004, the archival component of NARA's Southeast Region (including its genealogical program) will relocate to a new "state-of-the-art" archival facility located adjacent to the campus of Clayton College and State University in Morrow, GA (approximately 20 miles south of Atlanta).
