Executive Summary:

The Board of Supervisors established the County Historical Records Commission in 1979 to foster and promote the preservation of historical records.  As part of that mission, the Commission and the Sonoma County Library have come together to host an event that will highlight over 20 public, private, academic, and governmental special collections and archives that exist within the County of Sonoma.  The first Sonoma County Archives Crawl will occur on Saturday, October 5, 2019 at various locations around the County and the Sonoma County Library from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm.

 

Discussion:

Sonoma County has a rich history and numerous historically significant documents and records. A component of the Historical Records Commission’s duties are to identify and encourage the preservation, conservation, accessibility and use of historic records through events and other mediums.  The Archives Crawl was conceived to promote Sonoma County, our history and our records during National Archives Month. 

 

The Sonoma County Library and the Sonoma County Historical Records Commission have come together to host an event to discover, celebrate and promote the historical records collections held by many Sonoma County based organizations including over 20 public, private, and governmental special collections and archives that exist within the County.  The event will include presentations by local historians, table displays of various special collection items, and a network of sites throughout the County that will simultaneously be allowing access to their collections. 

 

The first Sonoma County Archives Crawl will occur on Saturday, October 5, 2019 at various locations throughout the County including the Sonoma County Library from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm.  The Archives Crawl will serve as an opportunity to learn from other organizations and share valuable resources with the public, in what we hope will be the first of many such events that celebrates our county’s history.

 

The attached resolution recognizes the first Sonoma County Archives Crawl and designates October 2019 as National Archives Month in Sonoma County and supports the unique history highlighted by this event.
