Three Updates at the National Archives

Record Group Explorer

The National Archives houses billions of pages of records, a volume so significant that researchers can easily be overwhelmed. A new tool released by the Archives makes it easier to browse those records by record group.

The Record Group Explorer first shows record groups organized by volume of textual records, from the most records to the least. Clicking on any of the record groups displayed gives more details about those records. RG 21 District Courts of the United States, for example, contains more textual records than any other record group: 1,709,570,359 pages.
