State Records Open Day report

A wrap-up of the State Records day for 2013 is available on their blog.

Around 350-400 people turned up for a rare glimpse behind the scenes of the NSW State archives. The theme of the day was Transport, Travel & Tourism and the program was packed with speakers, tours, advice on conservation and digital recordkeeping, plus a display of treasures from our collection. The history and genealogy stalls were very popular, as were the vintage military vehicles, food and coffee (the important stuff!) and the second-hand book sale.
