Re: MAIN and MTX info at the National Archives

Do you really want the boxes I searched? I'd think you'd rather have the ones that bore fruit. Although there are lots of varieties of fruit in that forest of information. I will post a proper citation once I consolidate my information. I did get a cart of stuff that was totally non-relevant when I used UD Entry 2 instead of Entry 2. Two very different record series with overlapping container numbers.
In a different part of the files, I located the staff work records that led to the adoption of a combined Government Bill of Lading-Government Waybill form in 1943, complete with examples of the form produced and used starting that year. I think those of us wishing to use more realistic paper work to route our model STMFC would be interested. That will be a future blog post too.

John; a very interesting posting. What years were you searching for your MAIN info? Can you pass on the box numbers within RG 336 that you searched ?
Thanks. (I plan to visit in the near future looking for MAIN info now that I'm aware it exists!)
