  • Federal population censuses for all States, 1790-1930 (including indexes for 1880, 1900, 1910, and 1920);
  • over 500 census index books for the years 1790-1870, with some gaps;
  • military service records;
  • pension and bounty land warrant applications;
  • passenger arrival records;
  • Native Alaskan censuses;
  • naturalization records.

Self-service microfilm readers and reader-printers are available without appointment. A 2-hour limit is imposed when researchers are waiting. Researchers from outside a reasonable driving distance from Anchorage may reserve readers for a longer period. Researchers using microfilm do not need a researcher's ID card.
