Why Donate Records?

​We can ensure that your records are preserved as long as physically possible. Digital preservation workflows are actively being developed that will ensure that digital material will be preserved as effectively as physical records.

Records donated to the Archives are available to the public for consultation and will allow:

  • Genealogists to build family trees
  • Historians to investigate our past
  • Authors to write books
  • Artists to create new cultural works
  • Researchers to connect to their shared past

Records you donate will be available to you upon request in our reading room.​
