Follow Friday - Sacramento Archives Crawl

What's an Archive?  What does an Archive have that can help me with my family history research?
 
Answers to these and other questions can be found at the second annual Sacramento Archives Crawl on Saturday, October 6, 2012 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.   This is an annual Archives Month event that takes place the first Saturday in October. Participants tour among four host archives in Sacramento, gathering stamps in their passports as they view treasures from dozens of archives and special collections libraries, visit with archivists, and go on special behind-the-scenes tours.

The four venues include the California State Archives, California State Library, Center for Sacramento History, and The Sacramento Room (Central Library).  This year's theme will be Building Sacramento/Building Communities, so crawlers can expect to see a wide range of materials documenting the growth of the region. Visit at least three of the four venues and leave with a set of four limited edition coasters.

As with the 2011 Sacramento Archives Crawl, participants will start at any of the four host locations and gather stamps in their passports as they view treasures from dozens of archives and special collections libraries, visit with archivists, and go on special behind-the-scenes tours.
 
Sammie Hudgens, Library Chairperson, will head the Root Cellar Sacramento Genealogical Society and Library delegation  at its exhibit table.  The library, housed at the California State Archives, will be open for crawlers to peruse its extensive collections. 
 
Crawling has never been such fun!!
