Until the Federal Register Act of 1935, the Department of State was the official repository of executive orders. Two series exist: one a numbered series covering 1862 to the present, and the other an unnumbered series starting in 1789. Many orders from the later period were not numbered and are therefore included in the unnumbered series. The Federal Register Act of 1935 required executive orders to be filed with the Office of the Federal Register and provided for publication of all orders of general applicability. From 1935 to the present, executive orders may be found in the annual volumes of Title 3 of the Code of Federal Regulations or in the Federal Register. Both may be found in HeinOnline, where there are also guides for finding executive orders from years prior to 1935. For the unnumbered series, see List and Index of Presidential Executive Orders: Unnumbered Series (1789-1941). For the numbered series, see Presidential Executive Orders: Numbered Series (1862-1938).
