Preserving the Past, Enriching the Future

Idaho State Archives Celebrates American Archives Month October 2016

Boise, ID – Celebrate American Archives Month with the Idaho State Archives! Following this year’s theme “Home Sweet Idaho” we will explore the idea of “sense of place” throughout the month of October. Join in on FREE events to learn more about local histories, how to take care of your precious heirlooms, conduct genealogy and property research—and more!

The Idaho State Archives will take to Twitter on October 5 for #AskAnArchivist day and encourage our community to ask questions and learn about archives and the archives profession. FREE workshops and presentations continue throughout the month and a full listing of events can be found at history.idaho.gov/archives-events. Activities will culminate October 19 with the panel discussion Beyond Borders—Boise Bench History Projects presented by local historians Jim Duran, Barbara Perry Bauer and Angie Davis; more information at history.idaho.gov/events/boise-bench-history.
