The shutdown of the US Federal Government does affect us genealogists both personally and as family history researchers.
Here are two announcements pasted on Facebook (FB) about how we are affected.
If you know of other closures that impact us as we research our ancestors, please post a comment!
Research at the
National Archives US
Due to the Federal Government shutdown, the National Archives (www.archives.gov) is closed. We are unable to post or participate in any of our social media channels during this closure. All National Archives facilities are closed, with the exception of the Federal Records Centers and the Federal Register until the Federal government reopens.
The Library of Congress
Due to the temporary shutdown of the federal government, the Library of Congress is closed to the public and researchers beginning Oct. 1, 2013 until further notice. All public events are cancelled and web sites are inaccessible except the legislative information sites THOMAS.gov and beta.congress.gov.
