Explore History: Sacramento Archives Crawl

Crawling in Sacramento?  What's going on here?

On October 1, 2011, come enjoy Sacramento's first annual Explore History: Sacramento Archives Crawl”. From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., nineteen archives and special collections libraries from the Sacramento area and beyond will be celebrating National Archives Month by exhibiting rarely-seen historic treasures from their collections at four host locations in the downtown area. 

Start off at any of the host locations --
-- then "crawl" to the others using the map provided in your Archives Crawl passport. At each location, you can view archival collections on display and take behind-the-scenes tours. Representatives from other archives and special collections libraries will be on hand to discuss their archival collections - historic photographs, rare books, historic artifacts - and answer your questions about how to connect with local history resources. Those who have their passports stamped by at least three of the host locations will receive a set of limited-edition collectible coasters with images from Sacramento's former Buffalo Brewing Company.
Self-promotion: Root Cellar Sacramento Genealogical Society, a sponsor of Family History Day, will have an exhibit at the California State Archives location.  Our Librarian, Sammie Hudgens, will be available to describe the extensive reference collections in our genealogical library housed at the State Archives.
Hope to see you there!  Knee-pads optional!
