These declassified seized German records were deposited at the Military Records Branch of the United States General Services Administration. They cover records of the National Socialist German Labor Party, its affiliated organizations, and territorial divisions. They include records on resettlement kept by the Deutsches Ausland-Institut in Stuttgart and agencies under Himmler, records of the Reichsstudentenfuhrung, and the National Sozialistischer Studenten Bund. This is a valuable aid for study of the German administrative and political history of the 1930s: the mechanisms of political control on the local level, the social background of local political leaders, and the development of National Socialist ideology. It offers an insight into university life after 1933 and the changes in the intellectual, political, and social views of students over a prolonged period of time. The collection also covers activities such as political indoctrination, propaganda operations, Jewish persecution, and foreign labor recruitment.

Naval Office Shipping Lists for East Florida, 1764-1769, in the Public Record Office, London.

East Ardsley, Yorkshire, England: Micro Methods, 1967 
British records relating to America in microfilm
1 reel(s)

Under the Navigation Acts, colonial officials kept records of shipping that entered and left ports in America. The naval officer, who was the clerk of the naval office in each province, gathered lists of shipping and periodically sent them to London. These lists include the date of entry or clearance from port, the ship's name, the home port or colony, the style of construction and tonnage, registration, name of master, and name of owner. They also describe the number of guns and crew, the cargo (including slaves and indentures), the last port of clearance, the immediate destination, and the date and location where bond may have been posted. This collection provides lists for the port of St. Augustine in East Florida. East Florida was established as a British province by the Proclamation of 1763. A naval officer was stationed in St. Augestine in 1764; his reports begin at that point.

An introduction at the beginning of the reel contains the provenance of the collection, background on naval officers and the shipping lists, information specifically about the East Florida lists, a summary of the lists, and a bibliography of related works.

1 reel(s)

The Navigation Acts required colonial officials to keep records of shipping that entered and left ports in America. The naval officer, who was the clerk of the naval office in each province, gathered lists of shipping and sent them to London approximately every three months. The lists include the date of entry or clearance from port, the ship's name, home port or colony, style of construction and tonnage, registration, name of master, and name of owner. They also describe the number of guns and crew, the cargo (including slaves and indentures), the last port of clearance, the immediate destination, and the date and location where bond may have been posted. Georgia is situated on the Atlantic coast and Savannah, its major port, was a center for overseas trade during the eighteenth century. This trade was based primarily on cotton, but silk, indigo, tobacco, rice, timber, and timber products were all exported through Georgia's ports.

Naval Office Shipping Lists for Maryland, 1689-1754, in the Public Record Office, London.

East Ardsley, Yorkshire, England: Micro Methods, 1970 
British records relating to America in microfilm
1 reel(s)

The Navigation Acts required colonial officials to keep records of ships that entered and left ports in America. Because so much of the trade in Maryland was conducted on rivers and inlets rather than in port cities, several clerks, called naval officers, were required to gather the information on these lists and then periodically send them to London. The naval officers in Maryland were in a peculiar position as they essentially served two masters. The officer was a member of the provincial system and as such he collected the tonnage and tobacco duties that were levied by the colony. He was also an officer of the crown responsible for controlling entrances and clearances from the ports of the colony. The lists he kept while fulfilling the second duty report the date of entry or clearance from port, the ship's name, home port or colony, style of construction and tonnage, registration, name of master, and name of owner. They also describe the number of guns and crew, the cargo (including slaves and indentures), the last port of clearance, the immediate destination, and the date and location where bond may have been posted. Again, because of the dispersal of trading activity in Maryland, these lists are complex and incomplete. The table of contents is invaluable in locating specific information.

British records relating to America in microfilm
4 reel(s)

The Navigation Acts required colonial officials to maintain records on all shipping which entered or left ports in America. During the period covered by this collection Virginia had no fixed port of entry. Most of the colony's trade was conducted along the coast or in rivers and inlets. Consequently six clerks, called naval officers, were stationed in different districts of the colony to gather shipping data which was periodically dispatched to London. The naval officers for the Lower James River, the York River, and the Upper James River were stationed at Hampton, Yorktown, and Williamsburg respectively. The lists report the date of entry or clearance from port, the ship name, home port or colony, style of construction and tonnage, registration, name of master, and name of owner. They also describe the number of guns and crew, the cargo (including slaves and indentures), the last port of clearance, the immediate destination, and the date and location where bond may have been posted. The lists for Virginia are largely complete from 1698 to 1707 and from 1725 to 1769. There are no records between 1707 and 1725.

Naval Office Shipping Lists for the West Indies (Excluding Jamaica) 1678-1825: in the Public Record Office, London.

British records relating to America in microfilm
15 reel(s)

The establishment of spice and sugar plantations was a major factor in the expansion of trade and the consistent growth of shipping traffic which occurred in the West Indies during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The islands were also important exporters of coffee and tropical fruit. The origin of the shipping lists goes back to the Navigation Act of 1663, which required colonial officials to record all ships entering or leaving American ports. Provincial clerks, called Naval Officers, gathered this data and periodically dispatched it to London. Accumulating the information proved particularly difficult in the British West Indies where most of the islands had several ports but only one Naval Officer and one official port of entry. Exceptions to this were Bermuda, Grenada, and Martinique, all of which had two official ports of entry. Due to their increasing economic value, possession of the West Indies was hotly contested and the region’s political geography was in a state of flux during the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. This was a result of Britain’s wars with Spain, France, the Netherlands, the United States, and Denmark. This situation stabilized after 1815, but of the nineteen islands mentioned in the records only Antigua, Barbados, Bermuda, Crooked Island, Exuma, and Tortola remained under British control throughout the period of 1678 to 18125. This factor has resulted in gaps in the records. The shipping lists contain the dates of entry and clearance, the name of the ship, home port, style of construction, tonnage, registration, the names of the master and owner, number of guns, cargo (including slaves and indentured servants), usually the last port of clearance, the port of immediate destination, and the location where bond may have been posted.

Nova Scotia Records of the United Society for the Propagation of the Gospel, 1722-1860.

East Ardsley, Yorkshire, England: Microform Limited, 1984
British records relating to America in microfilm
15 reel(s)

The Society’s missionary activities in Nova Scotia effectively began after the founding of Halifax in 1749. Since most of the residents of Nova Scotia were dissenters at that time, the Anglican Church did not gather much strength until the heavy influx of American Loyalists after the Revolution. At this point, in 1787, an Anglican bishopric was established and the Church in Nova Scotia strengthened in order to minimize dissent against English control. This collection contains correspondence from clergymen in Nova Scotia to the Secretary of the Society.

At the beginning of each reel is an index of persons mentioned and an annotated calendar of each letter received.

Frederick, MD: University Publication of America, 1982
38 reel(s)

Thermonuclear war and its aftermath are the subjects of these studies. Many memorandums, research papers, and reports in the collection were written under contract to the United States government by highly regarded "think tanks" such as the Rand Corporation, Hudson Institute, the Army War College, and the Institute for Defense Analysis. Topics of the contributed papers include disarmament perspectives, transattack environment scenarios, evacuation after attack, civil defense, theory of nuclear deterrence, the Soviet military industrial complex, nuclear proliferation, and the Strategic Arms Limitations Treaty (SALT II). These documents were originally restricted but are now released as a basic collection covering reports written between 1969 and 1981 and supplemented by two collections written between 1981 and 1984.
