A-Files at National Archives San Francisco
The National Archives at San Francisco and the National Archives at Kansas City currently maintain over 350,000 individual A-Files for persons born in 1910 and before. Because of strong interest and advocacy for the A-Files by local research communities and their congressional representatives, the National Archives at San Francisco will maintain A-Files controlled by INS district offices located in San Francisco, Honolulu, Reno, and Guam. Researchers seeking individuals who may have lived in these areas should check the holdings of both the San Francisco and Kansas City facilities.
A rich source of biographical information, A-Files may include visas, photographs, affidavits, and correspondence leading up to an alien’s naturalization, permanent residency, or deportation. Some A-Files contain records consolidated from older immigration case files series – such as Chinese Exclusion Act era case files – currently open for public research at the National Archives.
