I found out yesterday that OSS just declassified some former employees. I believe that my grandfather was one of them. I have found some references with his name that were never out there before in a generic search engine query, but when I click on the link there is nothing. Is there something I don't know? Is there a secret method to looking at declassified documents? My grandfather passed away when I was very young and I have been waiting many years for the chance to learn anything about what he did. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Not certain this is from the new group or one from 2000, it's not very clear. From everything I've found (so far) it doesn't look like the new files are on the web site yet.

This seems to be a longer list of related docs that have not been scanned as those above were.

Declassified records. Some of what I'm finding is overlapping I'm sure.

Check the links at the right side of this page under the What's New, Most Recent, and Declassified Documents headings.

Thanks! I was finding NARA to be a little overwhelming.
