Historic Seattle is offering a multi-session program designed to provide attendees with behind the scenes insight to primary research materials in the many archives in Seattle and King County. Each month we visit a selected archive and receive expert advice as to what is available and how staff can assist with research projects. This program helps you to explore buildings, architecture, and history. By the time you are through, you will want to attend one or more of the events during National Archives Month in Seattle in October 2014 and attend Historic Seattle’s Advocacy Workshop on November 8.
The first session takes place Saturday, February 8, 2014 (10:30 am to NOON) at Historic Seattle’s headquarters, the Dearborn House on First Hill (1117 Minor Ave). Presenters are Luci J. Baker Johnson and Eugenia Woo of Historic Seattle. Learn about the printed resources available at Historic Seattle’s research library and how to navigate various online databases that contain golden nuggets of historical treasures.
