The month of October is upon us, and that means it is American Archives Month. Here in Tennessee, the Society of Tennessee Archivists is marking this annual celebration with the publication of its annual advocacy poster for Tennessee Archives Month…
This year’s theme for the STA2011 conference is “Roots: Unearthing Family History in Tennessee Archives.” Playing off that theme, I think that our graphic designer did a wonderful job with the poster, highlighting genealogy and family history, and the role that archives play in helping to preserve our heritage.
I hope you’ll celebrate Tennessee Archives Month with the Society of Tennessee Archivists at our annual meeting on Oct. 26-28 at the John Seigenthaler Center on the campus of Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee.
