I find the list useful, but why did they choose not to include those records digitized by other agencies, like FamilySearch, etc.?

 

If anyone is interested, I created two topic-specific distillations of the list, for African-American records and Maryland records:

 

African-American records:  http://bit.ly/ca3VMI or http://www.examiner.com/examiner/x-8873-African-American-Genealogy-Examiner~y2010m4d20-NARA-releases-list-of-digitized-records--AfricanAmerican-research

 

Maryland records:  http://bit.ly/beWdSh or http://www.examiner.com/examiner/x-35819-Baltimore-Genealogy--History-Examiner~y2010m4d20-NARA-releases-list-of-digitized-records--Maryland-research

These lists omit the general records such as federal census records, military service and pension records (except U. S. C. T.), and Southern Claims Commission records, etc., in favor of those records specifically dealing with these topics.

I searched both Footnote.com and Ancestry.com for the Revolutionary War papers for Nicholas Corry. Both sets are supposed to be complete. I found him only on Footnote.com
 
Where are the 1890 Union Veteran census entries for Arkansas?
 
US Army Enlistments showed only one of Peter McSweeney's 3 enlistments, the middle one.
 
I appreciate the effort, but am less than satisfied with the results.
