Title: Order Forms for Genealogical Research in the National Archives.
OMB number: 3095-0027.
Agency form numbers: NATF Forms 81, 82, 83, 84. 85, and 86.
Type of review: Regular.
Affected public: Individuals or households.
Estimated number of respondents: 97,600.
Estimated time per response: 10 minutes.
Frequency of response: On occasion.
Estimated total annual burden hours: 16,267 (rounded up).
Abstract: Submission of requests on a form is necessary to handle in a timely fashion the volume of requests received for these records (approximately 12,000 per year for the NATF 81, approximately 600 per year for the NATF 82, approximately 1,000 per year for the NATF 83, approximately 6,000 per year for the NATF 84, approximately 46,000 per year for the NATF 85, and approximately 32,000 per year for the NATF 86) and the need to obtain specific information from the researcher to search for the records sought. The form is printed on carbonless paper as a multi-part form to allow the researcher to retain a copy of his request and NARA to respond to the researcher on the results of the search or to bill for copies if the researcher wishes to order the copies. As a convenience, the form will allow researchers to provide credit card information to authorize billing and expedited mailing of the copies. You can also use Order Online! (http://www.archives.gov/research_room/obtain_copies/military_and_genealogy_order_forms.html) to complete the forms and order the copies.Start Signature
