Inventory of the Naval Records Collection of the Office of Naval Records and Library Index

Most of the references are to entry numbers in this inventory. These references appear simply as numbers; there are no page numbers provided for them. However, sometimes unnumbered introductory sections are cited in the index. These references appear with a "p." to designate a page number, and you should look for the relevant information in these introductory materials and not in the numbered entries. [Page numbers are not shown in this online edition, but the links will take you to the text at the top of the page in question.]

Most naval installations are listed in this index under the type of installation rather than its location. (e.g. navy yard).

As is customary, the appendixes are not indexed.
