Overview
More
The National Archives at Atlanta is a center for the study of the history of the South, a diverse region rich with family tradition. Native Americans were living on the land when the first settlers arrived. African slaves were then brought over, and later came Irish, English, Italian, Russian, and Cuban immigrants. Their stories, told in the seemingly incongruous records of the federal government, provide evidence of the universal human drama that is American family life. Records in the National Archives tell the story of southern families and communities, technological advances that changed lives, and social and economic forces that shaped the makeup of our society.

As a historian, I've been to numerous archives. This is one of the best, in terms of staff professionalism and friendliness. The holdings speak for themselves. My only suggestion is to obtain some chairs for the research room that have locking backs. After 8 hours...More

The work areas for visitors are relatively small, but more than adequate even on Saturdays. The staff is excellent, dealing with everything from recalcitrant computers to questions about District Court documents. As a historian it is a pleasure to work in this branch archive.
