ARCHIVES MONTH - OCTOBER 2010
The story of Vermont is captured in records held in municipal and state archives, universities
and colleges, state and local historical societies and museums, libraries and other institutions
large and small. These records can be paper, parchment, photographs, film, video, audio tape
and even digital.
Historical records can document our rights and our property; they can add stories to our family genealogies; they can open avenues of inquiry or provide answers to long sought questions; and they can provide context to the issues of today. Perhaps most importantly, they tell stories that give shape and meaning to our lives and open doors to wonder.

To celebrate Archives Month VSARA has asked the keepers and users of historical records to share
brief stories on "ah ha" moments occasioned by the information held in historical records. We
thank those who have sent their stories and hope you too will be inspired to do so during October.
You can send your stories to me at
Gregory Sanford, Vermont State Archivist
