"I Found It In The [State] Archives!"
So much of what we know about the past and our ancestors comes from the records they kept.
And those end up archived somewhere.
In recent years, the "I Found It In The Archives!" campaign has highlighted some significant finds of documents and the stories they tell.
Now the Oregon State Archives are getting in on the act, pulling records of notable events in Oregon history out for the public to see.
Secretary of State Jeanne Atkins and State Archives Director Mary Beth Herkert call in with details.
The open house is Saturday 10 AM to 3 PM at the State Archives in Salem, if you'll be in the neighborhood.
