Requesting Forms from the National Archives

The National Archives does not answer requests for specific information about a person through e-mail.   All such requests are done by sending them a form through regular U.S. postal mail, not the internet/e-mail.

However, you can request forms by email:

  1. Address your email to:
  2. Put the word 'form' in the subject.
  3. In the text of your message, include your name and your postal mailing address (not your email address).
  4. In the text of your message, also state the number of the form, picking from the following list:
  5. Also state how many copies of the form you wish to receive. Requests which do not contain the word 'form' in the subject line get routed differently and will take more time to process.
