In order to investigate the relationships between electronic properties and crystal structures, a structure analysis of the organic superconductor, α-(BEDT-TTF)2NH4Hg(SCN)4, was performed using the observed 700-1300 Bragg reflections under the uniaxial strain along the each crystal axis of 1.0-2.0 kbar piston pressure. It was found that the calculated Fermi surfaces in the two-dimensional conducting layer are shrunk along the c-axis and swelled along the a-axis under the b*- and c-axial strain, while shrunk along the a-axis and swelled along the c-axis under the a-axial strain. The changes in the density-of-states at the Fermi level calculated from the obtained structures are qualitatively consistent with the observed change of the TSC.
