CLIO -- The National Archives Information Server – (BAD Link) - CLIO provides information for
     accessing U.S. archived Federal Records. The Guide to Federal Records in the National Archives of the      United States (NARA) details the organizational scheme of the documents, their locations, and access
     procedures. The Introduction to the online gopher listing for this site explains how documents are
     organized, and reading it is strongly recommended prior to spending time and resources searching the
     Indexes. NARA records are organized by the originating agency and further arranged based upon the
     agency's filing system. Try different search terms to find information. For instance, the general term
     "Indian claims" brought up documents in six different record groups; variations on this search term could
     bring up records in additional record groups. The following are examples of record groups:
          RG 75 Records of the Bureau of Indian Affairs –
          RG 279 Records of the Indian Claims Commission BAD LINK
