Three gold stars. Go to the head of the class my child! Blessings and hugs.

 

I found the following amongst others:

 

Engineers units can be found in boxes 552-747

 

Box 709 - 2827, 2828 and 2829 for the 36th Engineers

Box 710 - 2832 and 2833 for the 540th Engineers

Box 716 - 540th Engineer Combat Group

Box 714-715 - 39th Engineer Combat Group

Box 575 - 48th Engineer Bn

 

This is a real treasure!

I read the instructions on their page and they handle the procurement of documents the same way NARA does. You go there yourself, write to obtain, or hire a student or private researcher to scan and send them to you.

 

Since I won't be going to Kansas in the near future...

I sure wish I could go there. This amazing. Found 2 units I have been researching. Got to figure out if I know anyone out there to help me out.

Best of luck in that venture. Where there's a will there's a way.

I conducted my research here. I have no complaints. The staff was helpful, and pleasant to talk with. For the unit I was researching (24 Armored Engineers), they only had part of the records. They said rest were at Collage Park, or thrown away ( I hope not :pdt: ). I'm not sure if this is the same with other units though.

I know they have all the original maps from Market Garden. :pdt12:

College Park has a tremendous facility. That is where I acquired about 2000 pages of materials on my father's unit.
