Class Description

Like many state archives, the Colorado State Archives holds an enormous amount of material of historic interest that is useful to genealogists. It has over 1 million boxes and volumes. It has photographs, film, microfilm and slides. Its primary responsibility is to determine what records must be kept by governmental agencies, and then housing “historic” documents once they are not needed for everyday use by local or state officials. The Colorado State Archives holds the records of 240 state agencies, 64 counties, 280 municipalities, 176 school districts and 1400 special districts throughout the state. The Colorado State Archives is working to expand the number of digitized items and its Historical Records Database where indexed items can be found. If you have ever wondered whether or not your ancestors can be found in a state archive, come to this workshop and find out.
