Notes area


Due to the constant realignment of federal government bodies, the names often changed over time and, therefore, material from the various departments may be scattered throughout other files. Researchers should exam the file listings closely for any overlap between government bodies or for records of special committees and divisions. Also, files named by subject or other individual files within departments often appear to have been assigned the same number as the department itself
