The Department of Homeland Security is updating the General Information Technology Access Account Records System system of records notice to include four new routine uses and to add to the categories of records covered by the system.

The second routine use will allow for the routine sharing of business information outside of the Department for official purposes. This includes the sharing of business contact information to contacts outside of the Department. The third routine use allows for sharing for the purpose of investigating an alleged or proven act of identity fraud or theft. The fourth routine use allows sharing of information to regulatory and oversight bodies, including auditors, who are responsible for ensuring appropriate use of government resources. The categories of records in the system have been updated to clarify that the information used to access DHS networks is logged and recorded, specifically user IDs, date and time of access, and the internet protocol (IP) address of the computer used to access the network. Further added to the categories of records are the names of senders and receivers of email on DHS networks.

Establishment of a Genealogy Program
Document Number: E8-10651
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-05-15
Agency: Department of Homeland Security

USCIS expects that this Genealogy Program will ensure a timely response to requests for genealogical and historical records and will relieve USCIS' FOIA/PA program of requests that do not require FOIA/PA expertise. It will put researchers in touch with the correct staff persons within USCIS, and it will create a dedicated queue for genealogists and other researchers seeking access to historical records.
