Abstract: Submission of requests on a form is necessary to handle in a timely fashion the volume of requests received for these records (2,479 per year for the NATF 81; 280 per year for the NATF 82; 526 per year for the NATF 83; 3,669 per year for the NATF 84; 17,716 per year for the NATF 85; and 17,845 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
