Does anyone have advice on researching nasa apollo hardware from the 1960's?

I am interested in finding out the following information:

- Manufacturer
- When the hardware was used by nasa
- Where it was used (Missions)
- Which astronauts may have handled the items

Is their a way to trace an item using its part and serial number. I asked a nasa contractor to look up some serial numbers, but he was unable to find anything using a current electronic catalogue.

Any advice welcome. I think my next move would be to write to nasa and maybe try and arange to visit the Johnson Space Center in Houston to ask for help.

Depending on exactly what items you have, we may be able to help. Can you list a few items, including any part numbers? Sometimes the part number or other ID, dates stamped on the part, or a look at the part can help.
