Many people know the National Archives as the keeper of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. But we also hold in trust for the public the records of ordinary citizens—for example, military records of the brave men and women who have fought for our country, naturalization records of the immigrants whose dreams have shaped our nation, and even the canceled check from the purchase of Alaska. In a democracy, records belong to the people, and for more than seven decades, NARA has preserved and provided access to the records of the United States of America. Learn more about this collection.
