In this month’s listing, you’ll notice quite a few lists of money order post offices. We have only a few of these at the APRL, but Gary Loew has scanned many early lists from microfilm, and Chester Smith has scanned others from the originals. Both generously shared their scans with the APRL so that we could make them available for research. We’ll continue to add more lists and other U.S. Post Office Department documents as we have time. 

To access the digital copies, search our catalog for the title, click on “Full Record,” then click the link.
