Territorial Court Records to Remain in Alaska

In March, the National Archives and Records Administration announced the closure of its Anchorage facility. The research room was planned to close in June and the rest of facility will close permanently in September. The original plan said that all records held in the Anchorage facility were set to be transferred to Seattle — which had many Alaskans upset. A compromise has now been reached between the National Archives and Alaska State Archive: 92 percent of the Territorial Court Record Holdings will instead be moved to the Alaska State Archives.

This change affects only the Territorial Court Record Holdings. All other records will be moved to the Seattle facility.
