Subject: [ROOTS-L] post office appointment
Date: Sun, 29 May 2005 22:15:44 -0700 (PDT)
Back in 1998 I requested information on my great great grandmother's service as postmaster in a no-longer-in-existence small community in Texas. This is an excerpt from the letter that accompanied the requested records:
"The National Personnel Records Center, Civilian Personnel Records (NCPC), 111 Winnebago Street, St. Louis, Missouri 63118-4199, maintains and will furnish by mail extant personnel records for federal employees whose service ended after about 1910. Records less than 75 years old are closed to public examination at the center, but are available through the mail. Researchers requesting records from the Records Center should provide the full name of the employee, date of birth, social security number if known, name of agency where last employed, and place and approximate dates of employment."
The record copies she sent me were from "National Archives Microfilm Publiction M841, Record of Appintment of Postmasters, 1832-September 30, 1971."
My letter was signed by Melody Selvage, Research Associate, Postal History, Corporate Information Services. 475 L'Enfant Plaza, SW, Washington DC 20260-0012, (202) 268-5413, Fax: (202) 268-5413.
I hope this helps.
