October is Archives Month
Family photos, papers, videos, and other items are important to us. They contain our memories of our lives. However, if you are like a growing number of families, these “memories” are now stored in ways that make them dependent on technology to make them accessible. As new technologies emerge and current technologies become obsolete, we need to actively manage our digital memories to help protect them and keep them available for years to come.
The Kansas State Historical Records Advisory Board sponsors activities during Archives Month with funding from National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC). The Kansas Historical Society provides administrative support to the KSHRAB as part of its duties while actively safeguarding and sharing the state's history.
