The Washington State Archives is celebrating archives month with two local workshops designed to help citizens preserve history.

In “Uncovering the History of Your House in King County,” archivists will explain how to find intriguing information from diverse sources that will enrich understanding and appreciation for King County residents.

“The Basics of Digital Archiving” teaches how to safeguard personal treasures for future generations.

Attendees will learn basic techniques for organizing and preserving their precious digital photographs, emails and recordings. Experienced archivists will present best practices for taking care of their digital items.

“Uncovering the History of Your House in King County,” is from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., while “The Basics of Digital Archiving” is from 11 a.m. to noon Oct. 12.

Both workshops take place at the Pritchard-Fleming Building on the Bellevue College campus, 3000 Landerholm Circle S.E.

Space is limited for both workshops, so those interested are encouraged to register now by contacting Puget Sound Regional Branch archivist Mike Saunders at mike.saunders@sos.wa.gov or 564-3950.
